A Russian woman took drastic measures to try to prevent her daughter’s wedding today, calling in a bomb scare to keep her from flying to her beloved. The daughter, 33, planned to fly from Moscow to Morocco for her wedding, CNN explains. But the flight was delayed when her mom, 56, called to say that her daughter intended to blow up the plane.
The daughter was pulled off the flight, but later cleared after questioning. Investigators then tracked down the mother, who confessed to fibbing immediately. She explained that her daughter “recently fell in love with a Moroccan citizen and was planning to get married and move to Morocco,” the police department said. She’s being held on charges of making a terror threat.
