Bomb threats forced two Air France flights bound for Paris to be diverted Tuesday night.

An Air France jet from Los Angeles International Airport landed in Salt Lake City, and another flight from Washington Dulles International Airport near Washington, D.C., landed in Halifax, Nova Scotia, foreign media reports.

The flights were "subjects of anonymous threats received by phone after takeoff.

The incidents come amid heightened fears of terrorism after the deadly attacks in Paris on Friday, which killed 129 people.

Air France Flight 55 from Washington Dulles had 234 people aboard, and Flight 65 from Los Angeles had 473 aboard.

Flight 55 was a Boeing 777 and Flight 65 was an Airbus 380.
