A bomb threat on a plane arriving in Singapore yesterday has proved to be a false scare.
In a press statement last evening, the Singapore Police Force confirmed that it conducted security checks and “nothing suspicious was found on the plane or its passengers”.
Earlier, Singapore Airlines said there was a bomb threat to Flight SQ001, which originated from San Francisco and arrived at Changi Airport in the afternoon.
… Mr Rohan Gunaratna, head of the International Centre for Political Violence and Terrorism Research, noted that the post-Paris attacks have had far-reaching repercussions.
“In the high-threat environment, Singapore has stepped up its security measures in the land, aviation and maritime domains after the carnage in Paris,” he said, with aviation being the most “sensitive domain”.
