Cuba plane hijacked to Florida

Cuba plane hijacked to Florida

A Cuban airliner that was hijacked and forced to fly to Florida has landed after being escorted in by US military jets, US and Cuban authorities have said.
US authorities have detained six suspected hijackers in what an FBI spokeswoman said was "a peaceful surrender".

The Cuban plane, which had 35 people on board, landed safely at Key West International airport shortly after 2000 local time on Wednesday (0100 GMT Thursday).

The motive for the hijacking was unclear.
