Angry woman gets flight diverted over ‘cheating’ husband

NEW DELHI: An enraged woman forced an airliner to make an emergency landing after she discovered mid-flight that her husband was apparently cheating on her.
The woman, an Iranian national, was traveling from Doha to Bali with her husband and child on a Qatar Airways flight on Sunday, India’s Hindustan Times reported Tuesday.
As her husband slept, she used his hand to unlock his fingerprint-protected phone, revealing the alleged affair in all its sordid detail.
Angered by the discovery, the woman reportedly started to hit her husband. The cabin crew intervened but were unable to calm the situation.
With the inflight episode spiralling out of control, the pilots decided to make an unscheduled stop in the southern Indian city of Chennai.
The woman, her husband and their child were taken off the plane, which then resumed its journey to Indonesia, an unnamed security official told the paper.
“The family spent the day at Chennai airport and was sent to Kuala Lumpur by a Batik Air flight. No police action was taken,” the official said.
Qatar Airways was not immediately available for comment when contacted by AFP.

Lionel Messi’s brother Matias sentenced for illegal gun possession

BUENOS AIRES: Matias Messi, brother of Barcelona and Argentina star Lionel Messi, has been sentenced for illegally possessing a firearm.
Messi received a 2 ½-year prison sentence on Thursday but will not go to jail. He was instead ordered to perform community service. La Capital newspaper in the Argentine city of Rosario says that the decision was reached under a deal with investigating prosecutors.
The weapon was found late last year inside a blood-stained boat which Messi crashed in the Parana River.
The 35-year-old Messi was held under preventive arrest and later released while he recovered from a fractured jaw and other injuries at a hospital in Argentina’s Santa Fe province.
Messi’s attorney has originally said his client crashed into a sandbank and denied that he owned the gun.
