German warplanes force Korean Air jet to land in Stuttgart

Two German military jets were scrambled to intercept a Korean Air plane with 200 passengers on board, forcing it to land in Stuttgart, Germany. The military planes were dispatched after the Korean airliner, travelling from Seoul to Zurich, failed to respond via radio Saturday night, according to Stuttgart airport officials, cited by dpa. It is not yet clear what led to the loss of radio contact. As a result, affected passengers were stuck at the airport due to a flight curfew, spending the night at the airport in Germany’s southwest.
