Migrants force emergency landing

A woman on a Morocco-Türkiye flight forced the plane to land in Spain by pretending to go into labor

The plane touched down at El Prat airport in Barcelona on Wednesday, Spanish officials said, adding that the emergency was caused by a pregnant woman who faked going into labor. She was later taken to a hospital, which determined she was not giving birth.
