French Police Misplace Explosives on Jet

AP (Sat, Dec 04): French Police Misplace Explosives on Jet

French police deliberately placed plastic explosives into a passenger's luggage Friday evening but a 'momentary lack of surveillance' led to the bag being lost on a conveyor belt.

Police at Paris' top airport lost track of a passenger's bag in which plastic explosives were placed to train bomb-sniffing dogs, police said Saturday.

More than 300 passengers were evacuated and their luggage searched when their Air France flight from Charles de Gaulle arrived in Los Angeles late Friday the U.S. Transportation Security Administration said Two Air France and one American Airlines flight to Paris were also searched in New York City, TSA spokesman Norm Brewer said. No explosives were found on any of the flights.
As they say in French: Chapeau!
