About 130 people including six crew members were on Thursday evacuated from a Paris-Rome flight at Saint Exupery airport in French eastern city of Lyon following a bomb alert, according to police.
The A320 airbus belonging to an Italian company was forced to land in Lyon at around 11:30 a.m. local time (1030 GMT) after a Rome airport control tower raised a bomb alert concerning the plane.
The airbus was being searched and bomb disposal teams were at site, local police said.
The airport was not closed and its operations were going on, according to the airport management.
