Security Issues Divert Flight

A US Airways flight from Paris to Charlotte, N.C., was diverted to Bangor, Maine, due to a “security issue,” the airline confirmed Tuesday. Flight 787 was reportedly re-routed after a female passenger told the crew she had a surgically implanted device. The plane, carrying 188 passengers, was escorted by a military aircraft to Bangor. "out of abundance of caution" a federal official said. There was no immediate indication that the device was a bomb, though the woman was arrested and taken in for questioning, Rep. Peter King, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee said.
