Hijacked!: Attackers Take Over a Passenger Plane in Mexico

Posted by Web Staff - email | Facebook | Twitter

Mexico City, Mexico - A hostage situation in Mexico City has ended without incident.

Hijackers took over a commercial airliner in Mexico City.

The plane, an Aeromexico Flight, is still on the ground right now in Mexico City.

There were 104 people on board but everyone has been released.

Apparently the hijackers just gave up when Mexican security forces stormed the hijacked plane.

Five people were taken into custody.

The passengers were unaware there was ever a problem at all.

The 737 was coming from Cancun.

At one point the hijackers had threatened to blow up the jet unless they spoke to Mexican President Felipe Calderon but new reports say the hijackers never even had a bomb.
