A US Airways plane has been diverted to Philadelphia after a prayer device worn by a Jewish teenager onboard a flight was mistaken as a bomb.

The man had strapped the Phylacteries – two small black boxes with black straps – around his arms and head after take-off – causing alarm to other passengers who reported him to the crew.

The plane, which was heading for Louisville, Kentucky, from New York’s La Guardia airport, landed at around 2pm (GMT) today.

At least 12 emergency vehicles, including the Philadelphia bomb squad, rushed to the airport and the man was taken for questioning.
