http://www.thestar.c...-bound-flights/ yikes... But why KUL flights? - Security agencies zoomed in on all three Kuala Lumpur-bound flights - the 11.15pm Malindo Air flight OD-216 with 140 passengers on board; the 11.25pm Malaysia Airlines flight MH-195 with 158 passengers, and the 2am MH-187 flight with 145 passengers.

"The passengers who had boarded the aircraft were informed about the bomb call and asked to deplane to undergo a security check again," the Times of India quoted a police official as saying.

"Not a single passenger complained or created a fuss. Instead, they came forward and asked us to frisk them all; they didn't want any untoward incident mid-air," said the official.

The security search began at around 10pm on Monday and went on till 6.23am on Tuesday when the last of the three flights departed.

The Malindo Air flight arrived at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport at 11.20am on Tuesday while MH195 arrived at 11.35am and MH187 at 1.56pm.

"During the nine hour search, handbags, check-in bags, cargo compartments, passenger cabins, food galleys, liquor bottles on board - everything was inspected. We then concluded that it was a hoax call," a source told the paper.-
