707

Operations at the New York City airport had not been affected by the incident. Officials searched the plane nothing suspicious was found. The Joint Terrorism Task Force was monitoring and re-screening the plane. In a tweet early Tuesday, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey confirmed that a search of the plane yielded nothing. Authorities believe the threat was unfounded and gave the all-clear early Tuesday. The flight was rescheduled. Lufthansa tweeted that the flight was diverted “as a matter of precaution” and in coordination with relevant authorities and the pilot. In a such situation, making a delay is a preferred solution to avoid a tragedy. Special services already warned about possible terrorist attacks before the end of the year.
