Threat forces another Air France flight to divert

Flight from San Francisco to Paris lands in Montreal
An Air France flight heading from San Francisco to Paris was forced to divert to Montreal because of an anonymous and unspecified threat.
Flight AF083 landed safely at the Canadian airport with 231 passengers and 15 crew members on board.
“Following anonymous threat, crew of #AF083, decided per safety regulations to land in Montreal as a precaution. [The] flight landed normally,” the airline said.
“Local authorities [carried] out inspections. Air France staff [are]… taking care of all passengers.”
Last month two Air France flights were also diverted because of bomb threats.
