An airport in Alaska temporarily shut following a bomb threat on a cargo flight bound for Asia.

The China Air cargo plane en route to Taipei in Taiwan from Seattle was diverted to Anchorage’s international airport.

The airport reopened later Saturday after a thorough search of the aircraft was conducted and no explosives were found. 

An investigation into the source of the threat is currently ongoing, officials added.
