Could they have received a threat ???

Help I am confused

The news report I read this morning alluded to the possibility that airport security (vetting of bags, cargo etc) could not be guaranteed to be up to scratch.
The accident "fits'' with an onboard explosion, so until more is known this is a precautionary measure.
Makes sense to me.
