Audio answer: ‘Arsonist on board’

Here’s the text to the listening from yesterday.


A plane was performing a routine passenger flight and beginning its descent when a passenger suddenly started to act strangely. He took some gasoline and a lighter from his belongings and tried to set a fire. He managed to start a small fire before passengers and cabin crew overpowered him and put out the fire. He was restrained until the flight landed and taken into police custody upon arrival at their destination. It’s unclear how he got the lighter and gasoline on board and police are currently investigating the incident.
