Another plane incident as US remains on high alert


Another passenger has been detained on a flight from Amsterdam to Detroit. It is the same flight on which a man tried to set off a device two days ago. On Sunday, a man aboard the plane aroused suspicion by acting in a disruptive manner. However, no explosives were found on the passenger, and the FBI are describing it as a non-serious incident.

American airports are on high alert after the attempted attack on December 25th. Security has also been increased on international flights destined for the US.

Yesterday, Nigerian man, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was charged with attempting to destroy a plane.

US President, Barack Obama, has ordered a review of security following the failed attack.
