DENVER (AP) — Officials say a Delta Air Lines plane on a flight from Detroit to Denver reported an unspecified potential security threat and taxied to a remote area after landing safely at Denver International Airport.

FBI spokesman Dave Joley (JAH’-lee) said Friday the agency didn’t believe the threat was credible but agents followed standard security procedures as a precaution.

All the passengers were released after they and their luggage were screened.

No details were disclosed about the potential threat or how it was reported.
