German airline Condor said it received an "unspecified threat" made via phone, forcing it to divert an Egypt-bound flight to land in Budapest on Monday.

It said the plane, an Airbus A321, landed safely at 11:42 local time in Budapest where it was undergoing inspection.

"Safety takes the highest priority," Condor said in a statement, without providing further details of the threat. All 133 passengers and seven crew were safe and being cared for, it added.
