Détails:
Hong Kong police arrested a man who held a female hostage on board a Cathay Pacific Airways aircraft that was parked at the Hong Kong International Airport. The man, armed with a pistol, forced his way through a staff security checkpoint on the south side of the passenger terminal to the apron. The suspect then ran toward a parking stand and forced a cleaning woman to board the plane. The only other person then on board was an engineer who remained trapped in the cockpit until the incident was over. The gunman likely did not know that the engineer was aboard. No passengers were on the plane because the incident happened several hours before the flight was due to leave for Paris, France. During negotiations with authorities, the gunman threatened to kill his hostage (the cleaning woman) and demanded to be flown to Myanmar (Burma). After 2,5 hours, the hostage-taker surrendered to police and the cleaning woman was released unharmed.
