(06-18 19:21)

A 15-hour flight to Hong Kong proved a particular ordeal for one US passenger who accidentally trapped his middle finger in a toilet rubbish bin early Wednesday, police said.
Police said in a statement the 32-year-old suffered the accident on a Cathay Pacific flight.
The passenger on the flight from Newark became trapped more than one hour before landing when he threw away some garbage.
He had to stand alone in the washroom during the landing after flying for over 14 hours, it said.
Police said the man was able to free his hand with the help of firefighters after the plane landed and did not need hospital treatment.
The airline refused to comment on the incident.--AFP
