Jihadists flying in from Paris? From AP, with thanks to William Brown:
WASHINGTON (AP) “” A flight from Paris bound for Dulles International Airport was diverted Saturday night after U.S. Customs officials detained two passengers aboard, officials said.
Air France Flight 026 was diverted to Bangor, Maine, when officials realized that one of the passengers was on the U.S. no-fly list.
Yolanda Clark, a spokeswoman for the Transportation Security Administration, said authorities were investigating why the passenger was allowed to board the plane in Paris. The other person detained was traveling with the banned passenger. Both were in the custody of local law enforcement in Maine, Clark said.
