LONDON – A Lufthansa flight bound for Detroit has made an unscheduled stop in Iceland after suspicious bags were found onboard.
Fridthor Eydal, spokesman for Iceland's Keflavik International Airport, says the incident is not believed to be connected to the attempted terrorist attack on Northwest Airlines Flight 253.
He says the pilot stopped in Iceland Saturday afternoon to have the luggage onboard checked, after he was notified that the passenger who owns the bags stayed behind in Germany.
Eydal says there was no danger to the passengers and the plane is now on its way to Detroit. The flight originated from Frankfurt.
