“Bomber” arrested at Arlanda after flight scare


Man arrested after trying to get into Emirates cockpit

A man who tried to enter the cockpit of an Emirates aircraft heading for Sweden on Sunday morning has been arrested on landing at Stockholm’s Arlanda airport.

Soon after departing from Dubai, the man ran through the cabin shouting that he had a bomb, according to witnesses. He tried to break into the cockpit before the crew wrestled him to the ground and tied a cable around his arms. He remained on the floor for the rest of the flight.

“There was no chance he would have been successful in trying to get into the cockpit,” a border police spokesman at Arlanda said.
