Mexico Starts Flying Citizens Home From China

Looking to bring its quarantined citizens home, Mexico sent a jet to China today. As the Associated Press puts it, "the chartered Mexican plane (was) hopscotching China Tuesday to retrieve stranded residents."

CNN.com writes that the "Aeromexico flight was making several stops throughout China to collect nearly 70 citizens who were being held in quarantine across the communist nation as part of its strict swine flu-control measures."
