ATLANTA (AP) — Police were searching two planes at Atlanta’s main airport after authorities received what they described as credible bomb threats.

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport spokesman Reese McCranie said the threats targeted a Delta flight and a Southwest flight that landed safely Saturday. No one was injured.

McCranie said he did not have additional details about the nature of the threats, though he described them as “credible.”

A bomb squad and a dog unit from the Atlanta Police Department were planning to examine the aircraft.
