Greek authorities say fighter jets were scrambled to escort a British passenger plane to Athens airport following a bomb threat while the aircraft was in its way from Britain to Egypt.

Greece's Air Force said two F-16 jets and a Super Puma helicopter escorted the plane to Athens International Airport, where it landed without incident.

Greek state TV said the plane was carrying 213 people and that the bomb threat was made in a telephone call to a holiday company in Britain.

The plane was chartered by Thomson Airways.

A Greek defence ministry spokesman said all passengers and crew were safe and well. Source
