Jeddah, - A Saudi Arabian airlines plane landed in Manila airport on Tuesday following a false alarm about a hijacking incident, an airline spokesman said.

The flight 872 was travelling from the Saudi Red sea city of Jeddah to Manila.

It was isolated at Manila's Ninoy Aquino International Airport after the pilot advised the control tower that the plane was "under threat".

Saudi state television said the incident was over, and passengers could be seen disembarking from flight 872, which was traveling from the Saudi city of Jeddah to Manila.
