Authorities say they’ve found nothing dangerous aboard a flight from Taiwan to Los Angeles after someone called in a threat to the aircraft.

FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller says an inspection of the plane and screening of luggage Tuesday afternoon at Los Angeles International Airport yielded no evidence of a threat aboard EVA Air Flight 12.

The FBI, Los Angeles airport police and the Los Angeles police bomb squad were jointly investigating the threat that came by telephone.

On Monday, at least half a dozen other threats were made by phone to international flights at airports in New York, New Jersey and Massachusetts.

Authorities said Monday’s threats may have come from the same source and did not turn out to be credible.
