Australian police said nothing suspicious had been found after reports of a suspicious device forced the evacuation of a Pacific Blue airliner which landed in Sydney from Fiji on Thursday.

“Following an extensive search, nil items were found and the all-clear was given,” New South Wales state police said in a statement.

About 100 passengers and crew were evacuated from the flight from Nadi after reports were received that a suspicious device may have been on board. The plane was towed away from the main terminal buildings to be searched.
