China Southern Airlines A passenger jet that was forced to make an emergency landing amid a bomb scare after it took off from Urumqi Wednesday night has landed safely in Guangzhou, sources with the Guangzhou-based airline company said Thursday. China Southern Airlines' CZ3912 arrived at Guangzhou airport at 11:42 a.m., two and a half hours after its departure from Lanzhou, capital of the northwestern Gansu Province, a company spokesman said. He said all 93 passengers, including a baby and 10 foreigners, were safe upon landing. The flight, en route from Urumqi in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region to Guangzhou, made an emergency landing at Zhongshan Airport in Lanzhou at 9:53 p.m. Wednesday after police authorities in Guangzhou received an anonymous phone call warning of a bomb aboard.
