Beijing, China - In Dongguan city, Xiong Yi, 29, was arrested by the police in southern China when his phone call was traced threatening to blow up a commercial jet.

Xiong Yi admitted that he warned airport officers that a set of explosives would be detonated on a Shenzhen Airlines flight 45 minutes after take-off. The incident immediately forced air controllers to divert the flight, the report said. This is a similar incident which happened a day before to an Air China plane bound for New York that was forced to return to Beijing following a similar unspecified threat.

After hours of inspection on the grounded plane, police found no dangerous items on board.

In June, crew members and passengers of Tianjin Airlines domestic flight departing from a restive city in the far-western Xinjiang region thwarted six (6) members of China’s Uighur minority who attempted to hijack the plane. After the long struggle between the hijackers, crew members and passengers, the plane returned safely to the airport in Hotan city.

Beijing airport authorities warned passengers to be prepared for increased security measures, state media said Sunday. xiong-yi-china.jpg
