According to the Daily Mail, a Muslim migrant aboard an easyJet flight from the UK to Venice made passengers believe they were going to die in an act of terror.
As heard in an audio recording taken by a couple sitting near the man, the migrant was upset because he was being deported to Venice. Throughout the flight he screamed ‘Allahu Akbar’ 29 times, ‘death is coming’ 17 times and ‘we will die’ nine times in shocking two-hour frenzy.
FROM DAILY MAIL:
Children were reduced to tears and travelers feared a terror attack until it became clear that the handcuffed man was being guarded by UK officials.
But there was no official explanation from the captain or crew as he kicked, thrashed about and threatened passengers and crew in an expletive-strewn tirade.
Ironically, rather than calming worried passengers, easyJet cabin crew ordered passengers to delete videos and pictures of the man they had taken on mobile phones.
In a bid to control the deportee, one UK official crouched on his knees facing the man, with an arm on his shoulders, for much of the flight.
The man is thought to be a failed asylum seeker who had spent a year in a UK detention centre. He was being deported to Italy under the Dublin Regulation, which dictates that people must claim asylum in the first safe country they reach.
