The FBI is investigating threats to up to ten international flights after a man claimed chemical weapons were aboard the jets, according to multiple media reports.

NBC News is reporting that authorities do not believe that the anonymous threats are credible, but that they are still investigating. It adds that the male caller threatened at least ten flights and that authorities have so far cleared all but three of the planes.
Military jets scrambled on Monday’s Memorial Day holiday to escort an Air France flight as a precaution. The two F-15 fighters brought the plane to John F. Kennedy International Airport, where authorities searched the plane and found no evidence of chemical weapons.
