Police remove passengers from arriving flight at SFO, search cargo 

San Francisco police officers and bomb-sniffing dogs are inspecting cargo that was removed from a Philippine Airlines flight that landed at San Francisco International Airport tonight, a police sergeant said.

Flight No. 104, which was traveling from Manila to San Francisco, landed at the airport at 7:20 p.m., police Sgt. Michael Rodriguez said. The aircraft was met by members of the Police Department, he said, who escorted the plane to a remote section of the airport.

Once there, the 337 passengers and 20 crew aboard were taken off the plane and bused over to the airport's federal inspections area, he said.

The cargo was removed from the plane, Rodriguez said, and is currently being investigated by a police explosives team, which includes the trained canines.
