28 July 2016, 20:13

Basel - A woman triggered a false bomb alert at the airport in Geneva because she wanted to prevent her husband from flying away, Swiss prosecutors said on Wednesday.

According to a statement from the prosecutor's office in Geneva, the woman called the airport's customs office Tuesday night and said that a person with an explosive would be at the airport the next day.

It said that when the police raided the home, they found a woman who admitted to placing the call and who explained that she had wanted to prevent her husband's departure.

Investigators traced the call to a home in Annecy, a nearby town across the border in France.

"Before the incident was cleared up Geneva police were conducting strict identity checks on airport passengers.

"Heavily armed officers were deployed, and several entry points were closed

"Officials didn't say where the man was flying. Criminal proceedings against the woman have been started in Switzerland and France," the statement said.
