Four people have been arrested after a hoax bomb was found in the toilet of an Air France flight from Mauritius to Paris which was forced to divert to Kenya.
The Boeing 777 landed in Mombasa after a passenger reported the suspicious device.
A technical examination of the device found it did not contain any explosives.
The flight was carrying 459 passengers and 14 crew members when pilots requested an emergency landing at a Mombasa airport at 9.30pm GMT.
However, nearly 20 hours after the emergency landing, Air France have now confirmed that the device was a fake bomb made of cardboard and a timer, possibly designed to start panic.

Lt. Gen. (ret.) Wlliam G. “Jerry” Boykin, a former commander of Delta Force, said the Islamic law that most Muslims live by, the Sharia, cannot coexist with democracy, and added that to try to introduce Sharia in America would result in “the destruction of the U.S. Constitution.”
According to the Council on Foreign Relations, “Sharia guides all aspects of Muslim life, including daily routines, familial and religious obligations, and financial dealings. It is derived primarily from the Quran and the Sunna—the sayings, practices, and teachings of the Prophet Mohammed. … Marriage and divorce are the most significant aspects of Sharia, while criminal law is the most controversial.”
The Islamic State (ISIS) is apparently planning to subjugate and conquer the ancient civilizations of the East as part of its worldwide jihad.
The Islamic State’s newly-released manifesto contains, among the ideological positions and strategic objectives of the self-proclaimed Islamic Caliphate, direct threats to Hindus and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The 130-page English-language manifesto, entitled “Black Flags from the Islamic State (2016),” was uploaded in early December on various online forums sympathetic to the Islamic State. Previously, in July 2015, ISIS had circulated another document declaring its ambitions of expanding its Jihad into India.
This month’s ISIS manifesto claims India as part of Islamic Caliphate and, referring to the recent resurgence of Hindus in the country, states: “a movement of Hindus is growing who kill Muslims who eat beef.”
The ever-widening investigation of the San Bernardino terrorist massacre has revealed at least two dubious marriages that experts say expose huge loopholes in the immigration system and continue to put national security at risk.
Federal authorities have charged Enrique Marquez with marriage fraud for his allegedly sham union with Mariya Chernykh, a Russian woman whose sister married the brother of terrorist Syed Rizwan Farook after first gaining residence through an earlier marriage. And of course, Farook’s own wife, Tashfeen Malik, who was killed along with him in a shootout with police following their Dec. 2 attack, married her way into the U.S. under suspicious circumstances.

Miss Puerto Rico Destiny Velez has been indefinitely suspended by the official Miss America Organization after sending a series of offensive anti-Muslim messages on Twitter.
Velez, 20, launched an anti-Muslim tirade at filmmaker Michael Moore on Thursday after he shared a photo of himself outside of Trump Tower in New York City with a sign reading: ‘We are all Muslim.’
Moore’s photo was in response to Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump‘s proposal to ban Muslims from entering the US, which inspired the hashtag #WeAreAllMuslim on social media.
The former beauty queen sent a number of tweets directed to Moore including one that said Muslims have ‘terrorizing agendas,’ according to a grab of the tweets obtained by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

With dramatic surge in the number of Afghans leaving the country with majority heading towards European countries amid growing violence, the Taliban militants group in Afghanistan has issued an unusual statement urging the Afghans to remain the in the country, insisting that they wage jihad for the development of the country.
The statement by the Taliban group was released on Sunday and days after reports emerged that some of the Afghan migrants are purchasing threat letters forged by certain individuals who are charging considerable amounts in the black market to issue the letters in a bid to help the migrants easily go through the asylum process.
“While the Islamic Emirate sees the corrupt Kabul regime as the main driver behind the mass migration of our countrymen, it calls on all its countrymen fleeing the lap of their motherland towards the uncertainties of drowning in dark seas and being killed or held prisoners in foreign lands to choose the path of patience and perseverance by enduring the little hardships inside their country instead of illegal migration and defaming the Islamic Emirate by presenting fake threat letters,” the statement reads.
