A passenger has been detained in Indonesian after an apparent attempt to hijack a plane that landed at Bali airport, reports say. The Virgin Boeing 737 plane had flown from Brisbane in Australia.

Police told Indonesian TV that a passenger tried to enter the cockpit and take over the plane but had since been arrested. An Indonesian air force spokesman told the BBC that troops had boarded the plane.

A Virgin official was quoted by Indonesian TV as saying the passenger had been drunk and the plane had not been hijacked.
