Mar 17, 2011 — An Iranian cargo plane that the Turkish air force forced to land late Tuesday was allowed to continue its journey on Wednesday after its cargo, paperwork and crew were inspected at Diyarbakir Airport.
Turkish officials say nothing suspicious was found during this routine "technical landing", which foreign planes are sometimes subjected to. It was widely speculated that authorities suspected the plane was transporting nuclear material or weapons to its destination in Syria.
