US-bound Air France planes diverted following bomb, hijacking threats
All passengers were evacuated, while reports claim there was a bomb threat and a hijacking attempt.
PARIS - Two Air France planes flying to Paris from Washington and Los Angeles have been forced to divert to Halifax and Salt Lake City respectively.
All passengers have been evacuated, while unconfirmed reports claim there was a bomb threat and a hijacking attempt.
This development comes in the wake of last week's coordinated terror attacks in Paris in which 132 people were killed.
Meanwhile, French police are reportedly searching for a 9th suspect involved in the attacks on Paris.
Several attackers died during the assaults.

A warrant of arrest has already been issued for the brother of one of the suspects who died.
Police say video footage has now revealed a 9th attacker.
AFP reports the video apparently shows the new suspect in a black Seat vehicle with two other attackers opening fire with assault rifles through the vehicle's window at customers at a bar in central Paris.
The car was later found abandoned in a Paris suburb with three AK47 rifles in it.
Three assailants died at the Bataclan music hall, three more at the Stade de France and one on Voltaire Boulevard, which leads to the music venue. WATCH: Over 120 killed in Paris terror attacks

German Chancellor Angela Merkel and several cabinet ministers were expected to attend the match.
A friendly between Belgium and Spain was also called off yesterday due to a terrorist threat.
