10 passengers who helped to prevent a plane seizure in China have received nearly $16,000 each as a reward.

Six criminals attempted to hijack a plane in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region on Friday.

Members of the crew, acting together with police officers who happened to be on board, assisted by 10 brave passengers, succeeded in overpowering the terrorists as they tried to detonate the explosives they had managed to carry with them on board.

The plane’s crew were also rewarded for bravery.
