SilkAir flight held and cleared after 'bomb threat'

SilkAir flight held and cleared after 'bomb threat': "A Singapore-bound SilkAir flight was held for five hours at Cebu airport in the Philippines on Tuesday after a bomb threat, but police later cleared the aircraft for take-off, officials said.

'The Airbus 320 was taken to an isolated area for inspection,' Cebu airport control tower operator Arlene Albano told AFP by telephone after the security alert was issued shortly before the scheduled 1:30 pm (0530 GMT) departure of the flight."
