Bomb threat on El Al plane scrambles Swiss fighter jets

Swiss media report that the local air force escorted an El-Al plane after receiving notice of a bomb threat aboard the jet. The flight was traveling from New York to Tel Aviv.

It is believed that French authorities informed Switzerland of the threat, after which two Swiss fighter jets were dispatched to accompany the plane from the French border until it left Swiss airspace.

At this time, the El Al jet is still on its way to Ben Gurion Airport.
