Chinese police said the 41-year-old passenger, identified only by his last name Xu, had a "history of mental illness".

The flight made an unplanned landing at the Zhengzhou Xin Zheng International Airport, in the central Henan province at around 9:58 a.m., as per the earlier post on the Air China's official Weibo microblog. I mean a person with any kind of mental condition cannot be accused but the person could put others in a risky spot. However, China has been fighting growing dissent from a wide variety of groups including political, religious and regional breakaway factions.

The Zhengzhou airport said in a statement that is activated emergency measures, and added that the passengers who disembarked from the Air China plane were in a stable mood. A woman passenger told The Xiaoxiang Morning Herald that on looking outside the window of the plane, she notices many police cars, ambulances and fire engines parked at Zhengzhou airport.
