How about Bomb discovered and defused in toilet of Iranian plane? Depends if they moved the bomb before defusing it (unlikely). --Brian McNeil / talk 18:55, 31 May 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The sources aren't very specific about that. I think the current title sounds a bit awkward, although I couldn't come up with anything better. Tempodivalse [talk] 18:59, 31 May 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I renamed the page, does the new title sound better? Tempodivalse [talk] 19:10, 31 May 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yep. --Brian McNeil / talk 19:20, 31 May 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

How about Bomb defused in Iranian plane toilet ? --ReneJohnsen (talk) 20:09, 31 May 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Is the toilet really important? What about simply Bomb defused on Iranian airliner? Blood Red Sandman (Talk) (Contribs) 20:12, 31 May 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes, it is relevant that it was not found in hand luggage or in checked luggage for example, but actually placed in there. --ReneJohnsen (talk) 20:14, 31 May 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Bomb defused in Iranian plane toilet sort of gives the impression the bomb wasn't there to begin with, but that the toilet was simply chosen as a location where to defuse the bomb. Bomb defused on Iranian airliner, as mentioned above, isn't clear where the bomb was found, and it's somewhat relevant that the bomb was found in a lavatory and not, say, in luggage or in the cabin. I think the current title is the best one so far. Tempodivalse [talk] 20:19, 31 May 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Good point. Actually it might sound like they defused the bomb by throwing it in the toilet, and it was a black powder bomb with a burning fuse. --ReneJohnsen (talk) 20:23, 31 May 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
(edit conflict)Well, yes, but need that be in the title? The airline involved, route, midair turnaround, previous bombing and upcoming elections are all important aspects as well, but we can't place them all in the title. I don't mind having the toilet there; it's just if we are throwing around lots of possibilities it may do no harm to just simplify things - or, come to think of it, put a different aspect in there.

If there's anything more important than the toilet, thn I think the location of the city so close to the borders of Pakistand and Afghanistan would be the thing. "Plane toilet bomb safely defused in Iran border city"? That states the intra-plane location, without implying that the bomb was brought to the toilet to defusement, and it also says where in Iran it happened. --ReneJohnsen (talk) 20:37, 31 May 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
