Panama's National Police said Tuesday they had detained six Syrian passengers after they approached the cabin of a Copa Airlines flight from Cuba to Panama. The passengers were detained for "suspicious behavior" and were being held at Panama's international airport after the airplane landed safely, said National Police Director Rolando Mirones. "The crew noticed suspicious behavior from those who approached the cockpit, apparently with the intention of opening the door," Mirones said. Mirones said the suspects did not act violently in any way.
