NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- FBI agents are going to meet an incoming flight at a New Jersey airport after reports that a passenger claimed he'd poisoned everybody on board.

United Airlines Flight 116 from Tokyo is scheduled to land at 2 p.m. Eastern on Monday at Newark Liberty Airport, outside New York City.

An FBI spokesman says the passenger stood up and made the statement several hours ago and that the decision was made to continue on to Newark.
