Stabbings on Australian plane

Stabbings on Australian plane

Two flight attendants are being treated in hospital after being attacked by a man with a sharpened wooden implement on board a domestic flight in Australia.

Australian Transport Minister John Anderson said that the man, in his 40s, had headed towards the cockpit and threatened to crash the plane.

Mr Anderson said that although the incident appeared to be have been premeditated, "there's no evidence it was an act of terrorism".

The incident took place on board Qantas Flight 1737, shortly after it left Melbourne at about 1450 local time (0450 GMT).
