France to Punish Police for Bungled Bomb Exercise
PARIS (Reuters) - France's police minister vowed on Monday to punish officers who planted explosives in an unwitting plane passenger's luggage to test their sniffer dogs but then lost the "bomb," which remains missing after a three-day hunt.

Police were forced to alert around 100 airlines flying from the main Charles de Gaulle airport north of Paris after losing track of a 150-gram bar of plastic explosives placed inside a bag Friday.
