Rome: Air traffic was disrupted for hours at the Fiumicino Rome airport in Italy on Wednesday evening due to a false bomb alarm on a Niki flight bound for Vienna, media reported.

Anti-terrorism procedures were put in place and air traffic was blocked at the airport after a passenger of the departing flight said there was a bomb inside the aircraft, Xinhua reported citing la Repubblica newspaper.

The threat was later found to be a false alarm. The man who raised the alarm, first believed to be from an Arab country, was later ascertained by police to be a Slovenian national and was arrested for false report.

According to the report, the man told police his words were misunderstood by two Italian passengers who were not fluent in English.
