Drunken Brawl Sows Panic on Ukraine-Egypt Flight
Two Palestinians engaged in a drunken brawl on a flight from Ukraine to Egypt on Sunday, forcing fellow passengers to try to stop them and the pilot to radio the authorities in Cairo, police said.
The Egyptian police, briefed on the trouble via the Cairo control tower, arrested the two men as soon as the Air Ukraine flight landed at Cairo International Airport on a flight from Kiev, they added.
The two accused were identified as Ahmed Zayed and Suleiman al-Attar, reported as Palestinians. The police did not disclose the passports they were carrying - CAIRO (AFP)
