Two US planes hit by bomb threat

Police are searching two planes at Atlanta's main airport after authorities received what they said were credible bomb threats.

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport spokesman Reese McCranie said the threats targeted a Delta flight and a Southwest flight that landed safely today.

He said he did not have additional details about the nature of the threats, though he described them as "credible".

A bomb squad and dog unit from the Atlanta Police Department are going to search both aircraft.
