How To Deal With Muslim Hijackers - Chinese Style
Six Muslim Uighers apparently tried to hijack a Chinese airliner bound for the regional capital of Urumqi last Friday:
Just minutes after the flight took off from Hetian, southwest Xinjiang, the men, all aged between 20 and 36, stood up and announced their plans to terrified passengers.
The gang reportedly broke a pair of aluminium crutches and used them to attack passengers while attempting to break into the cockpit, Hou Hanmin, a regional government spokeswoman said.
The Chinese passengers attacked the hijackers, beat two of them to death and tied the rest up with belts.The plane landed safely minutes later, and the surviving Muslim hijackers were turned over to the Chinese authorities. They were reportedly carrying explosives.
