JAKARTA. Security personnel at Ngurah Rai International Airport in Bali apprehended a woman after she allegedly joked about having a bomb in her luggage.

Central Kalimantan native Titis AB, 28, was stopped from boarding a Wings Airlines plane to Malang, East Java, when she made the joke to airline staff at the departure gate, Bali Police spokesman Adj. Sr. Comr. Hengky Widjaja said.

“She said she was carrying a bomb. Security officers took her to a room for questioning,” Hengky said on Saturday as reported by newsportal tribunnews.com.
