A Turkish Airlines passenger jet performed an emergency landing at the Sofia Airport on Saturday, officials say.

After the aircraft was at the airport at about 19:00 EEST (17:00 GMT), all people on board were asked to leave it and were led to a safe location, and a laptop with an unknown owner was seized.

Authorities suspected it could contain an explosive device, the website Dariknews.bg informs.

However, no threat was established and the flight continued in a short time.

The plane was flying from Brussels to Istanbul.
