According to Moroccan aviation authorities, Casablanca Airport was operating normally after the incident.
On Saturday, Turkish Airlines flight TK-52 from Istanbul to Tokyo, Japan, had to return to Istanbul’s Ataturk International Airport after a bomb threat. A message said that in the jet’s lavatory there was “C4 cargo,” in an apparent reference to the well-known plastic explosive C4.
