Breaking News: Another apparent incident on Northwest Flight 253

Apparently, there has been another incident on today’s Northwest Flight 253 from Amsterdam to Detroit. The AP is reporting:

The Associated Press has learned that a second Nigerian man has been taken into custody aboard a jetliner in Detroit after locking himself in the airliner’s bathroom.

A law enforcement official tells the AP that the incident took place aboard the same Northwest flight that was attacked on Christmas Day. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the incident was ongoing.

A Delta spokeswoman says all 256 passengers have been safely taken off the plane. Delta operates the Northwest flight.
