White powder found on flight from Dubai

A BAG of white powder discovered on board an Emirates plane at Larnaca airport was found to be harmless after its discovery sparked the evacuation of all passengers.

The powder was found on the plane while it had stopped on its way from Dubai to Malta and the passengers were boarding. Upon the find, the passengers were told to disembark.

The authorities inspected the plan and the passenger area and excluded the possibility that the contents of the bags were drugs or explosives.

According to the Cyprus News Agency the passengers subsequently re-embarked and continued on their way to Malta.
