Two men charged over bomb hoax

Jan. 10 (Bloomberg) -- Two men have been charged by British police in connection with an incident in which an alleged bomb threat was made on board an Emirates Airline flight as it prepared to leave London’s Heathrow Airport.

Robert Fowles, 58, from Dover, south east England, is accused of making a bomb hoax and being drunk on the Dubai-bound flight on Jan. 8, the Metropolitan Police said in an e-mailed statement.

Another passenger, Alexander McGinn, 48, also from Dover, is charged with being drunk on an aircraft.

Fowles will appear at Westminster Magistrates Court, in London, tomorrow. McGinn was bailed to appear at the same court on Jan. 22.

A 36-year-old man arrested at the same time was released without charge, police said.

If found guilty they should lock them up and throw the key away.
