Police searching for 'ISIL member' who says is planning to blow up a plane
Security measures have been increased in Tallinn airport after an anonymous call warning of a terror attack, reports Postimees.
An unknown man, who introduced himself as an 'ISIL member', made a phone call to the airport and the security police. He said he was planning to blow up a plane heading from Estonia to Germany this week.
The man was speaking English. He made the call from the Estonian territory.
"Currently there is no other information except for the phone call indicating a threat, but we are treating this seriously," a law enforcement representative said.
The police are looking for the man who made the bomb threat.
"The ISIL has never warned of the attacks before. However, we have boosted security measures to detain the person who called," said Deputy Director of the Security Police Aleksander Toots.
