Airport Bomb Threat Came from China

      An international phone call last Friday threatening to blow up all airports in Korea was made through China Telecom, police here said Tuesday.

      Police said they tracked the call and discovered it was made via China Telecom and relayed via KT to Gimpo International Airport here. Police have asked Interpol to investigate the source of the call.

      The bomb threat was made at around 7:40 a.m. last Friday to the Korea Airports Corporation's call center at Gimpo. What sounded like a pre-recorded woman's voice made the threat in Korean, and it included the words "armed Arabs."

      Judging by the flawed grammar, police believe whoever was behind the threat made it in another language and had it translated. Airport police and task forces conducted searches in all 15 airports in the country but found no explosives.
