Oh so transparent newscoverage

Via Dean Esmay, Jeff Quinton:

BERLIN (Reuters) - Three men have tried to hijack a plane from Munich to Istanbul carrying 150 passengers but the pilot was able to return to Munich airport where special forces stormed the plane, German television has reported.

Bayerischer Rundfunk television reported that police said the pilot hit an alarm button after the plane, run by the company Free Bird, had been in the air for 10 minutes on Tuesday.

The television said the 150 passengers were unhurt. It said special forces overpowered the three kidnappers and one of them jumped from the plane onto the tarmac. No other details were immediately available.

As I've said before, as a Belgian it's easier to know what happens in, say, Saskatchewan, than to try and find out "available details" in your neighbouring EU-country. Wonder why that is ... .

Schmal I know what you are talking about. I got news from the stabbing of Jewish student Noah Schmal (at least I think that was his name) in Wilrijk last Thursday on Zeyad's blog from a guy who lives in Germany. He had it from LGF.
