Breaking News: Northwest Jet Forced To Land In Amsterdam

A Northwest jet from India to the U.S. was forced to land in Amsterdam. The crew reported suspicious behavior and requested a fighter escort. Although Dutch authorities say no one has been arrested, unconfirmed reports state that 12 have been detained.

Stay tuned.

UPDATE: CNN has confirmed that 12 passengers have been arrested.

You know, I am not an alarmist. But I have a friend flying to France today and I admit to being somewhat concerned.

UPDATE II: I doubt you will see much follow up on this so I'm going to make sure I close it out.

Dutch police released the suspects as there was no evidence. The lesson learned here? Don't act goofy on planes. We could all do with a little less goofiness on planes.
