A Newark-bound United Airlines flight is carrying a passenger who reportedly informed the crew that he "poisoned everyone on board." United Flight 116 from Hong Kong is set to land at 2:05 p.m. at Newark Liberty Airport.
The passenger is being restrained by other passengers.
Law enforcement officials in New York and Washington, D.C., are aware of the incident and are responding. UPDATE: An FBI spokesman says there is no indication that any passengers had actually been poisoned.
