A 28 year-old man from Kosovo was arrested in Munich airport after threatening the cabin crew of his Lufthansa flight to Budapest with a razor blade.
The man was deported from Munich, Germany after entering the country illegally on his way to Hungary where he applied for asylum, said Police spokesman Harald Lindacher. Apparently the man didn't want to be sent back to Hungary so he forced the plane to return to Munich airport.
The aircraft carrying around 72 passengers took off from Munich but turned around shortly after the man threatened a 50-year-old flight attendant with the broken razor blade. The plane landed and the passengers and some members of the crew left it safely, but the air hostess and the pilots remained on board.
With the help of an interpreter the police negotiated with the man and arrested him afterwards. Three flight attendants were slightly injured and others were in shock.
It is unknown at the moment how the man was able to get the razor blade on board.
