Turkish security forces did not find any explosives on a Swiss Air passenger plane at Istanbul's Ataturk Airport on Thursday, the semi-official Anatolia news agency reported.

The security forces searched the plane after a passenger found a warning note in a toilet at the airport's International Flights Terminal, claiming a bomb on board the Swiss Air plane.

The plane was scheduled to take off from the Ataturk Airport for Zurich at 5:15 p.m. (1515 GMT) with its 190 passengers. It is expected to leave for Swiss later in the day, according to the report.
