Two plane hijackers 'beaten to death by passengers' in China
news.com.au ^ | July 3, 2012

TWO men who allegedly tried to hijack a plane in China were beaten to death by passengers and crew.

The Global Times newspaper reported that two of the suspects died in hospital from injuries they suffered during the ensuing fight with passengers and crew on board.

The men were part of a six-strong gang involved in the foiled hijack of a Tianjin Airlines flight bound for the regional capital of Urumqi last Friday.

Just minutes after the flight took off from Hetian, southwest Xinjiang, the men, all aged between 20 and 36, stood up and announced their plans to terrified passengers.

The gang reportedly broke a pair of aluminium crutches and used them to attack passengers while attempting to break into the cockpit, Hou Hanmin, a regional government spokeswoman said.

They were tackled by police and passengers who tied them up with belts before the plane, carrying 101 people, returned to the airport safely just 22 minutes later.

Hanmin added that police were still testing materials they had been carrying, thought to be explosives.

The men were reported to be Uighurs, the local Muslim ethnic minority. There have been clashes between authorities and Uighurs resentful of government controls over their religion and culture.

Dilxat Raxit, spokesman for the German-based World Uyghur Congress which campaigns for Uighurs’ rights, said that it wasn’t a hijacking attempt, rather an in-flight brawl over a seat dispute.

“We warn China not to use this incident as another excuse for crackdown,” he said in an emailed statement.

Two more suspects are reportedly being treated in hospital after mutilating themselves.

Uighurs in the news! Alert Mark Steyn!

The term “Uighur Diaspora” has not been uttered publicly for several months - we’re long overdue.

Imagine if that happened on an American carrier. CAIR, ISNA, the UN and Obama himself would be screaming about a hair-trigger mentality toward the gentle, misunderstood adherents of the “Religion of Peace.”

Wonder who will be perceived as the "strong horse"?

Of course the problem here is that the seats they
were fighting over were the pilot’s and co-pilot’s.

When Muzzies try this on an airplane full of Americans, whether transiting American airspace or on their way to or from another country, I hope a similar outcome occurs.

Those 9/11 hijackers just totally ruined airline hijackings for the rest of their “brothers.”

Kudos to the brave passengers.

Now, if we only had enough brave citizens who would do the same thing to Mud-Slimes attempting to hijack our country and a government allowing them.

Warn away, big guy. Careful though. They may place a round in your head and send the bill to your family.

He's emailing from what he assumes is a safe place in Germany. I'm hoping that the Germans eventually make it unsafe for him.

Congratulations on only 10 posts before you cracked the code of Islamofacist speak. You're not just good, you're damn good.

Didn't we get our first hint on 9-11 with the 'Lets Roll' bunch in Pennsylvania?

We should have but thanks to the moronic ROP crap from GWB and the liberal media we have gone back to sleep.

I am surprised “Eric the withHolde”r has not filed a claim against the estates of the brave people of flight 93 for attacking the peaceful mudslimes. It would be right in tune with this administration’s attack on the majority.

The Uighurs forgot that what works in the west does not work in China. No one cares about the Uighurs and Communist occupation and Han ethnic cleansing of Turks and other minorities from their homelands. Terrorism will change nothing.

Are you saying that the Uyghur Kaganate did not exist in the 8th and 9th centuries?
