An aeroplane with 161 people aboard made an emergency landing in the Black Sea city of Burgas on Thursday, following a bomb threat while en route to Egypt from Poland’s capital of Warsaw, Bulgarian authorities said.

All passengers and crew were evacuated, but no explosives have been found aboard, a spokeswoman for the Burgas airport told Reuters, adding that the airport remained closed.
