By The Associated Press
MORRISVILLE, N.C. (AP) Passengers on a Delta Air Lines flight from Atlanta to Raleigh were forced to get off the plane on the tarmac at Raleigh-Durham International Airport after a bomb threat was made against the plane on social media. <br /> <br /> Airport spokeswoman Mindy Hamlin told local media outlets that airport officials were told about the threat around 12:30 p.m. Saturday about an hour after the plane took off. <br /> <br /> Hamlin says the plane was allowed to land at the Raleigh airport, but passengers were unloaded and baggage removed well away from the terminal. <br /> <br /> Authorities were checking the plane's baggage. <br /> <br /> Traffic at the airport only suffered minor delays. <br /> <br /> Authorities didn't release any additional information about the bomb threat.
