Airliner Diverted After Blast Warning

An Air Arabia airliner flying from Kuwait to the United Arab Emirates was diverted to a UAE military airbase on Sunday after a passenger warned the plane was about to explode. The aircraft was boarded after landing at the al Minhad airbase by the authorities who resolved the situation using "appropriate standard procedures." The UAE-based budget carrier said in a statement that Air Arabia flight G9128 from Kuwait to the UAE emirate of Sharjah was diverted following instructions from air traffic control due to an unruly passenger onboard.
