A delegation of nine high-ranking Pakistani officials was detained for 2.5 hours at Dulles International Airport Tuesday night after a member of the group made a comment to a flight attendant. After questioning by U.S. officials, the group was ordered to return to Pakistan by their own superiors, who believed the group was treated rudely. United Airlines did not provide details on the comment allegedly made to the attendant, but a member of the Pakistani group said one of the officials commented that "I hope this is my last flight." Security officials found that the group did not pose a threat.
