Surprised this hasn't made it to the major news networks. Apparently some men speaking English with an Arab accent declared there was a bomb on board in retaliation to Hussein's hanging. Read about it here (Spanish only).

Cheers,

Proberbly some nuts on their way to CAI or DXB Via ATH !!! Will be a pain for the passengers but will hopefully turn out to be some idiots. They are lucky they could land at SNN its wild stormy weather here tonight.

Hopefully the Greeks will make the best of it and enjoy with Craic with the Irish.

Ok this is what the true story was:::

All 183 passengers, among them Transport Minister, Mihalis Liapis, of Olympic Airways 412 flight to NY lived a thriller on air after a telephone call warning of bomb placed on the aircraft. The pilot made an emergency landing in Ireland for the aircraft to be inspected. Two unknown men speaking in English with an Arab accent called Eleftherios Venizelos airport at 03:05 on Sunday to say that a bomb "for Saddam" was planted on the aircraft. Finally, after careful inspection, it proved to be a farce. All passengers are in good health.
