    Airport officials say an airliner en route to San Francisco from Denver has been diverted to Salt Lake City following a bomb threat.
         
    Salt Lake City Superintendent of Airport Operations Dave Korzep says the plane has been sequestered away from the terminal. He says the FBI and airport police are on scene searching the plane.

    Korzep says the 193 passengers and six crew remain on board United Flight 741 and that there are buses waiting to transport passengers to the terminal when the all-clear is given.

    Korzep had no details on the threat. The FBI in Salt Lake City said it couldn't confirm anything.

    A United spokesperson says the flight was diverted as a precaution.

    No injuries have been reported.
