A passenger who was on board a Delta Air Lines flight that was the target of a bomb threat is now under arrest.

The plane -- headed from Frankfurt, Germany, to Atlanta -- was diverted to Ireland Sunday after a note was found in a bathroom suggesting there could be a bomb on board.

Police have arrested a 19-year-old German man. They say he hasn’t been charged. And police aren’t saying if they think he’s the one who left the note.

The plane was searched, and no bomb was found.

The rest of the 147 passengers -- who were all questioned by authorities -- are being flown Monday to Atlanta.
