Baggage on flight from London is re-checked at Newark

(AP) - An unspecified threat to a Continental Airlines flight held up some passengers at Newark Liberty International Airport.

Baggage on a flight from London got some extra attention.

The Port Authority says the precaution was taken because law officers told the agency of an unspecified threat regarding Continental Airlines Flight 115.

The Boeing 737 landed at Newark about 2:45 p.m. and went to the designated emergency area.

Port Authority spokesman Marc LaVorgna says its 77 passengers were bused back to their gate while the cargo and luggage were screened to make sure it was safe.
