    Authorities said that the decision to have the plane escorted by two fighter jets was done "out of an abundance of caution" after the Maryland State Police McHenry Barrack, in Garrett County received an anonymous call of a “chemical weapons threat” aboard Air France Flight 22, which was en route from Paris to New York City airport.

    Very sad that today has to be marred by such threats. Thankfully nothing presenting a danger was found.
