Plane diverted as drunk passengers abuse staff, others


Bosnia's Border Police say a Turkish plane flying from Istanbul to Rome was forced to land in Sarajevo because five "visibly drunk" passengers were insulting staff and other passengers, and helping themselves to food and alcohol without paying.

Police said the Pegasus Airlines plane resumed its flight to Rome after the five were detained. They will be confined to the transit lounge Sarajevo airport until they will be allowed to board a Pegasus flight to Istanbul on Friday.
