    Eight arrested in Hong Kong in masked traveller case:


    HONG KONG - Eight people — including current and former Hong Kong airport employees — have been arrested in the case of a young Asian man who disguised himself as an elderly passenger on a flight from Hong Kong to Vancouver, according to immigration officials.

    A spokeswoman for Hong Kong's Immigration Department told Postmedia News on Monday that the suspects were responsible for getting at least nine people into Canada, and could be linked to a boarding pass smuggling ring.

    The spokeswoman said a member of the ground staff at Hong Kong International Airport airport and two former airport staff members are among those accused of helping the young man — believed to be a Chinese national in his 20s — to board an Air Canada flight in Hong Kong in October while wearing a mask that made him appear to be an elderly Caucasian.
