Bratislava, May 2 (CTK) - The police at London's Heathrow airport on Wednesday detained a group of Slovaks and Czechs heading for the USA over a suspicious, detonator-like device uncovered on one of the Slovaks, who still remains in British detention, the Slovak news server TVNOVINY.sk reported Thursday.

The group of nine Slovaks and two Czechs arrived on a flight from Vienna-Schwechat and planned to continue to Las Vegas, the USA.

The Slovak BUBO Travel Agency that organised the trip has confirmed the information about the incident to CTK.

After a seven-hour questioning the investigators released both Czechs and seven Slovaks, who nevertheless, could not continue their way to the USA but had to return home, the server writes, citing one of the Slovak passengers.
