An Air France flight from Mauritius to Paris was forced to make an emergency landing in Kenya after a passenger found a suspected bomb in the toilet.
Kenyan authorities have now retracted an earlier statement which said that it was an explosive device, and now claim that it was a ‘dummy bomb’.
The Boeing 777 was carrying 459 passengers and 14 crew members when pilots requested an emergency landing at a Mombasa airport at 12.30am.
(There are photos of the bomb on social media according to the article. No doubt there is as people with cell phones are much more willing to inform others of what they need to know than is the MSM or our governments if it contradicts the narrative. Perhaps a reader can find one of them. More at the Tribune)

Immigration officers have given up trying to find more than 10,000 asylum seekers who are missing in Britain, a watchdog has revealed.
Staff are not even checking last known addresses because it is “not a priority” and a “drain on resources”, the chief inspector of borders and immigration found.
Illegal immigrants have also been allowed to abscond after being released from custody because there are no beds available in detention centres.
And more than 30,000 failed asylum seekers are still in the UK more than two years after all appeals against removal were exhausted, the report said.
JNS.org – Israel on Friday uncovered a number of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) along its border with Gaza, foiling a possible devastating terror attack.
Israel Defense Forces engineers uncovered the unexploded IEDs, with some devices connected to remote-controlled timers set to be activated by a cell phone, Yedioth Ahronoth reported. Earlier this week, a similar IED detonated near IDF troops.

Gun-toting US border guards with the power to search holidaymakers will be stationed at British airports for the first time, under controversial plans being discussed by Washington and London.
The US Department of Homeland Security wants to introduce the scheme at airports worldwide, including Heathrow and Manchester, to reduce the risk of Islamic State terrorists flying to America.
Guards from Customs and Border Protection would carry out immigration and customs checks before passengers board.
They would be given diplomatic immunity so they could not be prosecuted for any crime committed on British soil.
(Fascinating sign of the times, sin’t it?)
