INCDT: A Jamaica Defense Force counter terrorism unit stormed a CanJet (CNJ) 737 that had been hijacked on the ground for more than >8 hours at Montego Bay by a lone gunman in the early morning of April 20th, arresting the perpetrator and freeing six hostages. The ordeal began at around 10 pm April 19th night when "a young man armed with a gun . . . forced his way through security checkpoints" and boarded the 737, which was on a stopover en route to Santa Clara, Cuba, from Halifax, according to (CNJ). The perpetrator demanded to be taken to Cuba. He immediately released all 159 passengers and two cabin crew members (CA) after boarding the plane, but held six crew members (FC) - (CA) hostage through the night, the airline said.

Jamaican officials told reporters that negotiations proved futile, necessitating the raid. They added that the gunman, identified as a 20-year-old Montego Bay man, quickly was disarmed and arrested. No injuries were reported. (CNJ) said the flight was a charter operated for Transat Tours Canada. A Jamaican government spokesperson said the perpetrator acted alone and that the hijacking was "not anything that would be of concern in terms of an international incident." (CNJ) said the passengers were taken to a hotel in Montego Bay and were to be flown to Santa Clara on another 737.
