No Evidence Of Terror Found
After cancelling six
flights into and out of Los Angeles, Air France has resumed its
normal schedule. Investigators say they've found no evidence of a
Christmas Day plot to use Air France aircraft as human-guided
French officials said they cancelled the flights at the request
of the American embassy in Paris. Sources within the French
government cited "a variety of sources" indicating a threat
"sufficiently specific enough to be taken seriously."
But after seven men -- six Algerians and an American -- were
briefly detained, questioned, then freed at Charles de Gaulle
Airport in Paris, the Air France flights were allowed to resume.
Travellers who were stuck waiting in Paris didn't seem to mind the
delay. "I personally think that they have our best interests at
heart," said John Latchaw, traveling home to Boston with his wife
and teenage son.
