A DISAPPROVING mother told Russian airport officials her daughter was a suicide bomber intent on blowing up a passenger jet in a desperate bid to stop her flying away to marry.
Police scrambled to intercept the unsuspecting bride-to-be as her plane was prevented from taking off from Moscow's Domodedovo Airport, RIA Novosti reported today
But when authorities realised the tip-off was bogus they traced the anonymous call back to the woman's mother. The 56-year-old was arrested on suspicion of making a false terror report, the state-run Russian news agency said.
"Her daughter recently fell in love with a Moroccan citizen and was planning to get married to him and move to Morocco," said a police spokeswoman.
"The woman was against the marriage and did not want her daughter to move abroad."
Geez.... there's better ways of preventing your daughter from marrying someone you don't like.
