Air France confirms two flights from US to Paris diverted due to bomb threats
Two Air France flights headed from the United States to Paris were diverted because of bomb threats, officials said.
Both flights landed safely Tuesday night.
Flight 65, en route from Los Angeles to Paris, was diverted to Salt Lake City after a bomb threat was called in from the ground, a U.S. government official said.
Shortly afterward, Air France Flight 55 from Washington's Dulles International Airport to Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris was diverted to an airport in Halifax, Nova Scotia -- also because of a bomb threat, a government source said.
