Havana Hijack Attempt Foiled

Not sure why we haven’t heard much about this:

Two Cuban soldiers were arrested on Thursday after they attempted to hijack an airliner in Havana and fly it to the United States.  The two soldiers (who had actually deserted) took over a city bus and forced it to the airport, where they boarded a Cubana flight bound for Venezuela (though the aircraft was being leased from Spain’s Hola Airlines.  Nice name).  While onboard they killed an unarmed military officer prior to being arrested.
