Airliner Escorted by US Navy Jets

Flying over the eastern Mediterranean Sea, a commercial airliner operated by KLM Airlines was intercepted by Chinese fighter jets presumed operating from a Syrian airfield.  The Chinese jets attempted to divert the 747 reportedly to take custody of a political dissident believed to be aboard.  US Navy F/A-18 Hornets already on routine patrol in support of Operation Enduring Resolve were immediately ordered to locate the airliner to intervene and escort it to safety.  The Chinese aircraft quickly disengaged and departed the area while airliner landed safely under escort without further incident.  Pentagon sources published further information HERE.
