As Elin Ersson tells it, she is standing up in the aisle of the plane and refusing to move unless a 52-year-old Afghan Muslim who is being deported to Afghanistan is taken off the plane. She says he will be killed if he is sent back to Afghanistan. What she doesn’t seem to know is why he is being deported in the first place. It takes a lot for Sweden to deport anyone. No doubt this Muslim was in Sweden illegally and/or has committed several crimes.
There is sporadic applause from the passengers who are mostly Muslims as the flight was scheduled to stop in Istanbul first. There are also a lot of complaints. Finally, police intervened and removed her and the deportee so that plane could take off. I hope they arrested her but somehow I doubt it.
