LOS ANGELES (AP) — The FBI and Los Angeles airport police are investigating a threat to an EVA Air flight.

Airport police Sgt. Belinda Joseph says the plane landed as scheduled Tuesday afternoon at Los Angeles International Airport and authorities are investigating.

She could not elaborate on the specifics of the threat and didn't immediately have more information.

The FBI says in a statement that the threat came by telephone, but the agency isn't providing any further details.
