A bag with a handwritten inscription “Bomb to Brisbane” provoked a panic at Brisbane Airport, in Australia.
One of the passengers said she was confused when she saw the bag. “It was with a bunch of other bags, and I just saw the word “bomb. I did not know how to react, I thought that maybe it was a joke,” she described.
“The area was cordoned off, we were quickly taken away from there,” she said.
The police detained the owner of the bag, a 65-year-old Indian woman named Venkata Lakshmi, who explained that Bomb on her bag means the name of the city of Bombay (Mumbai)
“She began to write” Bombay “, but realized that the word doesn’t fit, and left “Bomb to Brisbane”, below she specified “Mumbai.”
Good grief, lady!
