WENZHOU - A flight bound for Beijing from Wenzhou on Wednesday was delayed for nearly two hours after a passenger claimed to have carried a bomb onboard in the luggage, airport authorities said.

The CA1568 flight from Yongqiang Airport in the eastern city of Wenzhou, Zhejiang province, scheduled to take off at 11:25 am did not leave until 1:08 pm.

Airport police carried out a search of the plane and no bomb was found, an airport spokesman said.

The passenger, surnamed Zhang, was arrested and the case is being investigated.
