Kenya's interior minister says several people who were on Air France Flight 463 are being questioned in Mombasa.

Minister Joseph Nkaissery spoke at a news conference at the Mombasa airport, where the flight from Mauritius to Paris was diverted early Sunday at the request of its pilots. Authorities say a suspicious package was found in one of the plane's lavatories and experts in Mombasa were examining it.

Air France says the plane was carrying 459 passengers and 14 crew members. Nkaissery did not say how many are being questioned or if they were passengers or crew.

The minister said another Air France plane will pick up the passengers once the interrogations are done. He did not say how long that would take.
