Ryanair says flight diverted to Belarus lands safely in Vilnius

DUBLIN, May 23 (Reuters) - Ryanair said its flight that was forced to land and spend a number of hours on the ground in Belarus on Sunday arrived safely in the Lithuanian capital of Vilnius at 1825 GMT.

The Irish airline said earlier on Sunday that nothing untoward had been found after it was notified of a potential security threat on board one of its planes by Belarus air traffic control and instructed to divert to Minsk. (Reporting by Padraic Halpin; Editing by Alexander Smith)
