Southwest flight lands in Texas after bomb scare

Probably just an attention seeker getting his kicks but we have to take every threat seriously:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A Southwest plane landed in Houston on Friday and was being checked for explosives after a passenger handed a flight attendant a note saying there was a bomb on board, a U.S. Homeland Security official said.

The plane was carrying 136 passengers and five crewmembers, Southwest Airlines spokeswoman Edna Ruano told CNN. She had no immediate details on any threat to the plane.
