    Bomb found on aeroplane in Iraq: US

    BAGHDAD, Nov 22: A home made bomb was found on a commercial airliner in Iraq on Monday, the US embassy said, adding that US citizens should beware of travelling on commercial carriers flying to Iraq.

    The embassy gave no further details in its statement, adding only that "additional screening measures are being put into place at the Baghdad International Airport".

    It did not say if the "improvised explosive device" was found on a plane that had just arrived in Baghdad or on one about to depart, saying only that it was found on a plane "inside Iraq".

    "American citizens are encouraged to review their travel plans to determine whether travel on commercial carriers servicing Iraq is necessary at this time," said the statement. -AFP
