A 49-year-old Israeli man was detained by police at El Dorado International Airport in Bogota, Colombia, after he reportedly threatened to set off an explosive device.
According to local police, the man, identified as Joseph Bronfen, was awaiting a domestic LATAM Airlines flight from Bogota to Barranquilla, which was delayed by an hour and 40 minutes.
As the 135 passengers boarded the delayed flight, Bronfen said that if there were any additional delays, he would “activate the bomb” that he was carrying.
Flight attendants alerted police, who boarded the plane and removed Bronfen. Security officers searched his luggage and did not find any explosive device.
According to reports, Bronfen was deported from Colombia.
