Special forces police stormed the jet and released all 103 passengers and crew unharmed.

As Aeromexico Flight 576 was landing in Mexico City after flying from Cancun, he stood up and showed his bomb, which he later described as a juice can...with some little lights I attached, to a flight attendant. He ordered the pilot to circle the city but the plane did not have enough fuel.
