KIEV, December 26. /TASS/. Three Moroccans were removed from a Kiev - Paris flight at Kiev’s Borispol international airport and taken to police after lame jokes about their ties with terrorists, a spokesman for Ukraine’s state border service said on Saturday.
"The jokes by three Moroccan citizens entailed the delay of a flight from the Borispol airport to Paris. While onboard a plane bound to Paris, three Moroccan citizens spoke about their friendly relations with people recruited by a terrorist organization. The crew reacted instantly," the spokesman said, adding that the flight had been delayed and the students had been delivered to the police.
After being taken off the flight, the young men said they were just having fun. "Now, the hoaxers will have to provide explanations to the national police," the spokesman added.
A series of terrorist attacks rocked Paris on November 13 with shootings, bomb blasts and hostage taking. Hostages were taken at the Bataclan concert hall where 1,500 people gathered for a rock concert and almost simultaneously three suicide bombers blew themselves up next to the Stade de France stadium where a football match between French and German national teams was in the full swing. Besides, terrorists opened fire at people in popular nightlife spots - cafes, bars and restaurants crowded at that time. The death toll reached 130, of whom 90 were killed in the Bataclan concert hall. Following these attacks France imposed an emergency situation regime which will stay in place at least till February 2016.
