Beijing Press pack detained

The Huffington Post reports that a plane carrying the White House press pack to Beijing was detained for three hours due to “logistical problems”

Delays on landing have happened before, but no one on the plane was able to recall one this long. The plane landed at 2:10 a.m. local time. Passengers finally were able to get off the plane shortly after 5 a.m. However, they were made to pass through Chinese immigration control individually, and baggage was still being screened. link via private Twitter

That’s one whole plane load of 40 or so grumpy journalists unleashed upon China.
