Turkish news agencies say a bomb threat has forced a plane bound for the United Kingdom from Pakistan to make an emergency landing in Istanbul.

The Anatolia news agency reports the Pakistan International Airlines plane was carrying 378 passengers to Manchester when it was forced to land Wednesday at Istanbul's Ataturk airport. The agency says bomb squads began searching the plane with sniffer dogs.

No other details are available at this time.
