By | On June 11, 2017 (1 month ago)

A London-bound easyJet flight was diverted to

Cologne on Saturday evening due to a “suspicious

conversation” heard on board, with passengers

evacuated on emergency slides and three men

arrested, German police said.

The pilot of flight EZY3246, which had taken off

diversion to Cologne’s Bonn airport after

passengers reported that the men were talking

The men were not identified.

“Investigations continue regarding the suspicion of

preparations for a serious violent crime that could

Six aircraft were diverted to other airports as a
