PORTLAND, Oregon (Reuters) - The U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation is probing an incident on a Delta Air Lines flight from Japan involving suspicious items, the FBI said Tuesday.

The FBI, which is working with Customs and Border Protection, the Transportation Security Administration, the Port of Portland and Delta, said the suspicious items were not explosive, but did not give any further details.

The flight arrived at Portland International Airport at about 8:00 a.m. PDT (11 a.m. EDT) Tuesday, according to the FBI, with 155 passengers and 10 crew members on board.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers are processing the passengers and baggage through security and FBI agents are interviewing passengers and crew members, the FBI said.

U.S. authorities are on high alert for explosives aboard airliners after two parcel bombs addressed to Jewish institutions in Chicago were intercepted last week on cargo planes in Britain and Dubai. The mail bombs were thought to be the work of al Qaeda's Yemen-based arm. (Reporting by Bill Rigby, Editing by Sandra Maler)
