Bomb Found in Namibia Could Be Security Test

Friday, 19 November 2010 06:59 AM EST

A suspected bomb discovered at a Namibian airport didn’t contain explosives and may be a dummy used by governments to test airport security, German broadcaster ZDF said, citing German officials it didn’t identify.

Which authorities might have placed the device found at the airport in Windhoek isn’t known, ZDF said today on its website.

The travel bag, whose discovery delayed a Nov. 17 Air Berlin Plc flight to Munich for hours, contained batteries wired to a functioning clock and a detonator, Germany’s Federal Criminal Office, or BKA, said yesterday. There are indications “that it could be a test,’’ German Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere told ZDF yesterday, without elaborating.
