Airliner lands in Moscow after report of trouble

MOSCOW (AP) -- Russian news agencies say a commercial airliner has landed in Moscow after reports of trouble on board.

The ITAR-Tass news agency cites a spokesman for the Sky Express airline as saying that a passenger demanded the plane change course about 20 minutes before it was due to land in Moscow.

Russia media reported that about 130 people were aboard the Friday flight from the city of Sochi.
