A plane has been hijacked while on the tarmac near Jamaica's resort city of Montego Bay, an airport spokeswoman said Monday morning. Elizabeth Scotton said there had been no casualties and no passengers were aboard the Boeing 737 at Montego Bay's Sangster International airport. Scotton said she could not confirm reports that a gunman was holding members of the crew hostage on the plane. CNN reported that seven people were being held hostage. Scotton said the situation began around 10 p.m. Sunday and the Canjet flight destined for Halifax, Canada, never took off from the airport.
