A false bomb alarm on a Niki flight bound for Vienna disrupted air traffic for hours at the Fiumicino Rome airport in Italy on January 14, 2015.
Anti-terrorism procedures were put in place and air traffic was blocked at the airport after a passenger of the departing flight said there was a bomb inside the aircraft, IANS quoted Xinhua as citing la Repubblica newspaper.
The threat was later found to be a false alarm. The man who raised the alarm, first believed to be from an Arab country, was later ascertained by police to be a Slovenian national and was arrested for false report.
According to the report, the man told police his words were misunderstood by two Italian passengers who were not fluent in English.
