An airline passenger reportedly tried to light his shoes on fire on a flight from Washington, D.C., to Denver but was subdued by air marshals. It was United Flight 663, a Boeing 757 with 157 passengers and six crew members aboard.
Authorities think it was an attempted “shoe bomb” attack, according to ABC News, which first reported the story, but details couldn’t immediately confirmed.
ABC News identified the suspect as a diplomat from the Qatar embassy in Washington.
The Associated Press cited unnamed sources saying the FBI is investigating the incident.
