A passenger plane flying to the Egyptian resort of Hurghada has made an emergency landing in Bulgaria after a bomb threat.

The aircraft with 161 people aboard landed at Bulgaria's Black Sea coast city of Burgas, foreign media reports.

All passengers and crew were evacuated, but no explosives have been found aboard, a spokeswoman for the Burgas airport told foreign media.

It comes a day after two Paris-bound Air France passenger jets, flying over the United States and Canada, were diverted because of threats.

On October 31, a Russian plane flying from the Egyptian Red Sea resort of Sharm al-Sheikh to St Petersburg blew up in mid-air killing all 224 people onboard.

Investigators say a bomb brought down that plane.
