    MIAMI — Authorities say a Brazilian man is charged with sending police and airline officials an email claiming that a plane scheduled to fly from Miami to Brasilia was going to be attacked.

    The U.S. Attorney's Office in Miami reports 22-year-old Francisco Fernando Cruz was charged with transmitting a threat in interstate or foreign commerce.

    A criminal complaint says Miami-Dade police and TAM Airlines received an email Wednesday threatening a specific Friday flight.
