U.S. officials force plane carrying no-fly list passenger back to Paris



Published: Sun, July 10, 2005 @ 12:00 a.m.



CHICAGO (AP) -- An Air France flight en route to O'Hare International Airport was ordered to return to Paris about two hours into its trip after a passenger's name showed up on the federal no-fly list.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents found the passenger's name while reviewing the manifest for Flight AF050 against the government's no-fly list, which they do for all international flights, said Lara Uselding, a spokeswoman for the Transportation Security Administration.

Four people were taken off the plane, the flight's captain, Dominique Mure, told the Chicago Tribune.

All were later released by French officials, but none re-boarded the plane, he said.

The flight, originally carrying 291 passengers, arrived in Chicago early Saturday.

Air France officials did not immediately return a call to comment.

The move came a day after the deadly bombings in London raised alert levels in Europe and the United States.
