Algerian man ‘urinates’ on passenger during flight to Paris
The incident took place mid-air on a flight from Algiers to Paris, causing the aircraft to divert to Lyon
An Algerian man on board a flight allegedly urinated on a passenger earlier this week, frightening other travelers and causing a fight with the cabin crew, Al Arabiya News Channel’s website reported.
The incident took place mid-air on an French charter carrier Air Méditerranée flight from Algiers to Paris, causing the aircraft to divert to Lyon, around 400 kilometers to the south.
According to the report, flight ML2673 was halfway through the 90-minute journey when the one of its 166 passengers began to complain because he could not allowed to smoke or drink alcohol on board.

The man allegedly urinated on a passenger before being pinned down and detained by flight attendants.
He was then escorted off the aircraft by police when the flight landed at Lyon.
A second man who was involved in the fight was also removed from the plane.
The plane eventually took off again and passengers arrived at Paris’ Charles de Gaulle Airport three hours behind schedule.
