Brief hijack episode in Mexico ends

A hijacking in Mexico is apparently over.

An airplane was briefly hijacked today as it landed in Mexico City after a flight from the resort of Cancun, but officials now say all passengers and crew have been released unharmed.

Television images showed police leading at least five men from the plane in handcuffs. Mexican news media reported the hijackers were Bolivian citizens who were demanding to speak with Mexican President Felipe Calderon.

Officials say there was no bomb on the airplane, although some passengers said one of the hijackers held a package that resembled an explosive device.
