Leesburg man charged with fake bomb threat on cruise ship

Authorities have arrested a 31-year-old Leesburg man after a bomb threat was reported on a Carnival Cruise Lines ship outside Port Canaveral, Fla.

Khalil Ibrahim Zarou has been charged with false report about planting a bomb.

The threat was reported aboard the Carnival Sensation early Sunday morning. The U.S. Coast Guard, FBI and Brevard County Sheriff's Office searched the ship and determined the threat was a hoax.

The ship was detained offshore and cleared to proceed at about 10:45 a.m.

About 3,470 passengers and crew members were on board.
