A bomb was discovered on the plane 15 minutes into the flight from the southern Iranian city Ahvaz bound for the capital Teheran. The plane turned back to the airport in Ahwaz, where authorities disarmed the bomb.  According to regional media, Khatami was scheduled to be on the flight, but his plans changed and he left on an earlier flight.
