TEHRAN (Reuters) - A U.S. airliner flying from Bombay to Amsterdam made an emergency landing in Tehran on Sunday, but no one was hurt, a civil aviation official said. The United States and Iran have been on hostile terms since the 1979 Islamic revolution.
The Northwest Airlines flight landed at 4 a.m. (2330 GMT, Saturday) at Tehran's Mehrabad airport after encountering a technical problem with its cargo section, Mohammad Jafarzadeh, spokesman for Iran's Civil Aviation Organization, said.
"All 255 passengers and crew are safe and sound and were taken to the airport transit lounge," he said.

I doubt they got any chance to drink in Iran, alcohol is quite illegal there as an Islamic fundamentalist country, no?

Perhaps Iran should have done what the US did in 1988 and shot down the airline killing all the passengers.
