Augusta - A US Airways jet flying from Paris to Charlotte, North Carolina, has been diverted to Maine because of what an airline spokesperson calls a "security issue".

A person briefed on the incident said a passenger announced she had a surgically implanted device. The source spoke on condition of anonymity because it involved sensitive law enforcement information.

US Airways spokesperson Andrew Christie says the jet with 179 passengers and nine crew was diverted around noon on Tuesday to Bangor International Airport. He says there was a "security issue" on Flight 787.

The Transportation Security Administration says the flight was diverted "out of an abundance of caution".
