Chinese aviation personnel compensated 1 million yuan for foiling hijacking

Protection staff at the Hotanflight terminal have not been perceived as to blame of the dereliction of obligation after a foiled plane hijack attempt last week, the public security chief of the Civil Aviation Administration of China said on Friday.

On June 29, the cabin crew and passengers on Tianjin Airlines’ flight GS7554, which flew from Hotan to Urumqi in the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, foiled an attempt by six would-be hijackers. At least 10 people were injured.
Media reports quoted passengers as saying that the hijackers waved metal bars that were hidden inside crutches, and took out lighters to ignite bottles suspected of containing explosives.
