STOCKHOLM (Reuters) – A Norwegian Air Shuttle plane heading to Nice in France with 169 passengers on board has returned to Arlanda airport outside Stockholm after receiving a bomb threat, the company said on Thursday.

A police spokeswoman said that officers were at Arlanda as a result of a threat made against an airline, but declined to give any further information.

The Maritime Administration, which deals with air and sea emergencies, could not immediately be reached for comment.
