A Saudi Arabian airlines plane landed in Manila airport on Tuesday following a false alarm about a hijacking incident, an airline spokesman said.

A television report said that flight 872 was travelling from the Saudi Red sea city of Jeddah to Manila. It was isolated at Manila’s Ninoy
Aquino International Airport after the pilot advised the control tower that the plane was “under threat”. Saudi Arabia’s Ekhbariya television said the incident was over.
