This could have been a nasty incident if the passenger’s mobile phone batteries had caught fire rather than overheated.

The batteries in question were traced to a passenger’s handbag which began emitting white smoke.

The incident took place on an Ethiopian B737 between Addis and Gaborone with its final destination being Cape Town.

Reported by AV Herald on November 19.
