kidnapped airplane with 104 passengers in Mexico city's airport RIGHT NOW


www.reuters.com

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - An AeroMexico passenger plane was hijacked in the Mexican resort of Cancun on Wednesday and flown to Mexico City's international airport where Transport Minister Juan Molinar said it landed safely.

Mexican radio said the plane was carrying 104 passengers.

TV images showed Mexican security forces arriving in trucks at Mexico City airport, where operations were suspended.

Local newspaper websites said three men earlier seized control of the Boeing 737 plane and threatened to blow it up unless they were allowed to speak to President Felipe Calderon.

El Universal daily said the men had not been able to get inside the plane's cockpit.

I was just going to post this.

Not in English yet, but it is on CNN right now. The hijackers appear to be either Bolivian or Columbian (by accent identification). They are demanding to speak to Mexican President, and it appears that the President my show up, they are trying to figure out logistics. Explosives on board, 2 maybe more hijackers, say that if Calderon does not come they will blow up the plane, which is sitting on the tarmack in Cancun

edit: can't type and listen and watch at same time, must work on multitasking skills

Obviously this is drug related.

Why else would they want to speak to the President?

Wow, Mexican violence is very much on the rise.

Any word if Americans are on the plane?

They want to speak to Mexican president Calderon, who has cancelled his appearance at another event. Mx minister of defense is supposed to be en route to airport. It was a flight within Mexico, no mention of specific passangers yet, it is being described as a national emergency.

Some passengers are evacuating the plane!!!!!!!!! Hmmm...odd for a hostage situation.

Probably there is because Cancun is one of the most visted places in Mexico so it may have people from at least 3 countries

Mexico City - Three unidentified attackers hijacked a passenger plane in Mexico on Wednesday and threatened to detonate a bomb. The attackers - reportedly three men - demanded to talk with Mexican President Felipe Calderon, Mexican radio reported. The plane operated by the airline Aeromexico took off from the renowned resort city of Cancun, in southeastern Mexico, and was hijacked by the time it landed at Mexico City airport, where it remained isolated on a runway. All flights were suspended at Mexico City airport.

HMM well ive never heard of suicidal mexican terrorists, have you?Usually, people klike that are from the middle east area. I dont think if thier drug cartell related, theyed risk thier lives like that to blow up 104 strangers to get a point across..their drug dealers! thier in it for the money! I kinda wanna call bluff on thier behalf. IN other words they have no intentions of blowing up the passengers...unless the 3 hijackers themselves get off the plane, and pre set the bomb for detonation after theyve left the plane/area , the DEF yeah, im sure they just might.
Wonder if mexico will set up sharpshooters like black friday back in the 70's? Germany/olympic games, that itself was a mess that was fumbled. I do hope and wish, the passengers thier are not harmed and find a way to get off and away safely!!! i will be praying for them today...
