Narrative:
Officials at Cairo's international airport said they found a bomb in a plane that arrived from the Libyan capital, Tripoli.

A team of explosive experts was summoned. They removed the bomb from the plane and defused it away from the airport buildings. The device was a tear gas canister.
It is still unclear if the bomb was placed on the jet in Cairo or in Tripoli, where it had left from.
