Islamic Jihad Terrorist Thugs in China, attempt to destroy a China Southern airliner, by lighting a fire in the lavatory on Saturday.
The flight departing for Wuhan, was forced to make an emergency landing returning to Diwobao International Airport in Urumqi, capital city of Xinjiang.
Two passengers a man and a woman were removed from the aircraft by Chinese Authorities.
Xinjiang’s population of 21 million is divided between Turkic Uighur’s Muslims and Han Chinese, many who have arrived in recent years.
In March, 2008 two passengers a Uighur Muslim man and woman, were taken into custody by Chinese authorities after attempting to bring down a China Southern Airline jet enroute from Xinjiang to Beijing, by igniting a liquid smuggled in a canned drink.
On the 17 July, I wrote here that President Obama claims that Uighur Muslims pose no threat to security and are merely misunderstood victims of circumstance.
