iPod prompts airport bomb scare in Canada

An iPod found in an aircraft bathroom on a flight from Chicago to Ottawa caused a bomb scare earlier this month, bringing out police canine and bomb-disposal units. The Ottawa Citizen reports: “A member of the crew found the package about 4 p.m. The plane landed safely and was isolated away from the terminal. Passengers were taken off the plane and questioned by police while experts investigated the ‘package.’ The airport was not closed during the three-hour incident. Police issued a statement Tuesday evening saying the suspicious package ‘has been identified as an electronic device commonly known as an iPod.’”
