An Olympic Airlines flight to Cyprus
had to return to Athens Tuesday on reports the plane had anthrax
According to media reports, Flight 329 turned around shortly
after takeoff following an anonymous phone threat made to Greek
police. No anthrax was found in a search conducted once the plane
arrived safely back in Greece.
Greek police are investigating if the incident is connected with
a bogus bomb threat that was also called in Tuesday, which closed
an Athens subway station for more than an hour.
