The latest from CNN:
The hijackers — possibly Bolivians or Colombians — took control of the Boeing 737 Aeromexico jet as it flew from the resort town of Cancun. They said a cardboard box they were carrying contained a bomb, which they threatened to blow up if their demand to speak to President Felipe Calderon was not met, CNN affiliate TV Azteca said.
The jet was moved to a remote area of the airport, and passengers were allowed to deplane; clutching their hand luggage, they walked slowly down the stairway to the tarmac.
Moments later, the suspects were taken into custody.
"It was very difficult, but the pilot told us to remain calm," said one passenger, who added that many of the other passengers were families returning from vacation in Cancun.
The incident began at 1:40 p.m. as the plane — Flight 576 — arrived from Cancun, and ended more than an hour later, slightly before 3 p.m.
So…that accomplished what exactly?
