Bomb threat at Soekarno-Hatta

TANGERANG: Soekarno-Hatta International Airport received a bomb threat on Tuesday night.

"I have put a bomb in Terminal II," the man, who identified himself as Abdullah, told an airport telephone operator at about 11:30 p.m.

The caller said he was ordered by three men from Aceh to place the bomb in the terminal.

Members of the police bomb squad were called in to search the area. All they found was a used battery in the terminal's parking lot, and concluded the call was a hoax. -- JP
