A plane passenger has threatened
a flight attendant with a fountain pen, forcing an Air China flight bound for Beijing to make an unscheduled landing, according to the country's civil aviation authority.
In a brief statement on its website, the Civil Aviation Administration of China said a male passenger, who it did not identify, on Air China Flight 1350 attempted to use the pen to hold the flight attendant "under duress".
Passengers and crew were unharmed, the statement said, without providing any further details.
Chinese police said preliminary investigations found the 41-year-old passenger, identified only by his last name Xu, had a "history of mental illness".
Had to get in the mental unfit plug when discussing the assault.
