Bomb hoaxer held

SEOUL: A South Korean who was running late for his holiday flight has been detained for allegedly phoning in a bomb threat to delay the plane’s departure, police said yesterday.

The man identified only as Shin called Gimpo airport west of Seoul on Monday and claimed a bomb would explode on a flight bound for the southern resort island of Jeju.

Shin made the call from a payphone. Four Jeju-bound flights were delayed for up to two hours for searches. Shin made his flight but was arrested after he returned to Seoul on Wednesday. AFP
