Possible Incident on Delta Flights from Europe

The Counterterrorism blog is reporting that there may be an incident on 2 Delta flights from Europe:
"News wires are now reporting that two Delta Air Lines flights, #81 and #119, inbound from Europe and Asia to JFK International Airport have declared in-flight emergencies and have landed under guard in New York. Reportedly, the emergencies were sparked by phoned-in threats to hijack the aircraft delivered to the U.S. government and a U.S. embassy abroad. "

I'll update as more details are known.

UPDATE: Fox News reports that a phone call was placed to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey stating that 7 persons on the terror watch list were on the planes. As it turns out none of the persons of interest were actually on the planes. The planes landed without incident.
