An inbound flight at Los Angeles International Airport was thought to have a bomb on board after a threat was found in the lavatory, reports The Daily Breeze.A Thai Airways flight from Bangkok landed on time at 8:45 p.m. Tuesday night, but was immediately subject to inspection by a bomb squad. The threats were written on the mirror in a lavatory on the aircraft, according to a live report on KTLA.

"No evidence of an explosive was found by bomb technicians and dog handlers with the FBI, LAPD and LAX police, who inspected passenger and cargo areas inside the aircraft and had all baggage X-rayed," FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller explained. Now the investigation turns towards determining who left the threat.
