A US hijacker returns from Cuba

An American who hijacked a plane to Cuba nearly 30 years ago has returned to the United States.

William Potts was taken into custody the moment he landed in Miami.

In 1984 the Cuban government jailed him for 13 years, but afterwards he settled in Havana.

Potts, who wanted to return to the US hopes the authorities will be lenient.
