US Airways flight diverts to Maine on ‘security issue’


By Glenn Adams, Associated Press | USA Today

US Airways jetliner flying from Paris to Charlotte, was diverted to a Maine airport on Tuesday after an apparently mentally unstable French passenger announced that she had a surgically implanted device, a U.S. official briefed on the investigation said.

The woman, a French citizen born in Cameroon, did not have any checked baggage, and there was no information that indicated she was a known or suspected terrorist, according to another official. Both officials spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because it involved sensitive law enforcement information.
