A Delta Airlines official says a passenger aboard a plane at Detroit Metropolitan Airport set off firecrackers aboard the plane, causing a commotion and some minor injuries.
Delta spokeswoman Susan Elliott says Flight 253, an Airbus 330
carrying 278 passengers, was arriving in Detroit from Amsterdam on
Friday afternoon when the firecrackers went off. Flight 253 is flown by Northwest Airlines, which has merged with Delta.
Elliott says the passenger was immediately subdued. She had no details on injuries.

describe the injuries.
An FBI spokeswoman in Detroit says the incident is being investigated.
