Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi, after a caller
said two aircraft would be hijacked on Tuesday. The caller said he
wanted to collect a reward offered for information on terrorism.
There were no hijackings and the phone number given by the caller
turned out to be a fake. But the incident highlighted an ongoing
airport security alert in India, where intelligence reports
indicate Islamic fundamentalists might try to hijack a commercial
aircraft and fly it to the Persian Gulf.
