People on a plane mistakenly believed a man, who set a countdown timer and began reciting a text, was a terrorist. Portuguese actor Heitor Lourenco was meditating to a sacred Tibetan text while the plane was awaiting takeoff from Paris.
Shortly after, the 47-year-old was escorted off the flight by police. He was released after six hours of questioniong. His Wikipedia profile allegedly confirmed that he was a Buddhist.
"Police told me that I had been denounced as a terrorism suspect aboard the plane because I was reciting the Koran aloud, that I was reading a text involving words ´death´ and ´bomb´," Lourenco exlained.
