Plane Hijacking With A Happy Ending

Six Muslims (now, there's a surprise!) attempted to hijack a plane during a Chinese flight. Only four made it out alive.

Two would-be plane hijackers were beaten to death by passengers and crew aboard a flight bound for the regional Chinese capital of Urumqi on Friday, The Global Times reports. The men died in the hospital from the injuries they suffered at the hands of those whom they thought would be their victims.

There were a total of six men involved in the foiled plot to hijack the Tianjin Airlines flight. All of the men were reportedly Uyghurs, a local Muslim ethnic minority.

I love a story with a happy ending. The only thing that could have made it better is if all six hijackers were killed, instead of only two. But this is a start.

Below the fold, a re-enactment of how the passengers may have subdued and, ultimately, beat to death the hijackers.
