Turkish plane makes emergency landing in Morocco

The plane was allowed to continue on its journey to Sao Paolo after a security check

CASABLANCA - A Turkish Airlines plane bound for Brazil was forced to make an emergency landing in Morocco on Sunday following a "bomb scare", an airport official said.
The plane landed at Casablanca Airport after taking off from Istanbul following the discovery of a suspicious mobile telephone, the official said.
A security check was carried out at the airport before the plane -- an Airbus A340 with 229 passengers on board -- was allowed to continue on its journey to Sao Paolo.
