    New Zealand - Woman wounds pilots on plane

    WELLINGTON, New Zealand - A knife-wielding woman tried to hijack a regional domestic flight in New Zealand Friday, stabbing both pilots and threatening to blow up the twin-propeller plane before she was subdued, police said.

    The pilot suffered a severely cut hand in the attack, and the co-pilot was injured on the foot, Cliff said. One passenger suffered a minor hand injury caused by the attacker, Cliff said. He did not explain how the woman was subdued.


    I can imagine how the woman was subdued....

    I wonder why this woman from Somalia wanted to go to Australia? I'm glad she didn't succeed.

    She might have had family here..although youd think she could have found an easier way to visit...maybe shes been turned away before.
