A gunman in Jamaica who has taken control of a passenger jet at Montego Bay airport is still holding five crew members.

All the passengers onboard the charter plane have now been freed. The captor reportedly breached airport security with false ID last night and boarded the plane as it was getting ready to take off for Nova Scotia in Canada. The man, who’s been described by authorities as “mentally challenged” has demanded to be flown to Cuba.
