MUMBASA — Bad news for some 400 or so people aboard a Mauritius plane bound for Paris. According to reports,  said plane was diverted to nearby Mumbasa over the weekend after a passenger reportedly found a suspicious package in the bathroom — that led them to believe it was actually a bomb.

Officials say the Boeing air liner was carrying roughly 459 people, and, as of this writing, some 6 of those people are purportedly being questioned by Kenyan authorities over the makeshift device.   Officials say it was a “similar” device to a bomb with a timer and all, but, wasn’t actually a bomb.
