Swedish police say a man detained after Canadian authorities were told he was carrying explosives on a Pakistan International Airlines jet has been released in Stockholm, where his flight from Toronto to Karachi was diverted Saturday.
The RCMP now say they're investigating whether the incident was a "terrorism hoax."
No explosives were found on the man or on the plane.
The tip was "called in by a woman in Canada," police spokesman Stefan Radman said. The anonymous woman caller called twice Friday to say a man on the flight had explosives.
