Airport authorities arrested an Iranian national who went berserk in Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 3, Pasay City, Thursday afternoon.
According to the Bureau of Immigration (BI) spokesperson Dana Sandoval, the foreigner went to the airport to talk to his fellow female Iranian national who was held at NAIA due to the red alert notice of the International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol).
The 31-year-old Iranian woman arrived at NAIA Terminal 3 past 1 pm on a Cebu Pacific flight from Dubai.

Authorities also seized a small canister labeled “flash bang,” which was later learned to be a cigarette lighter.
The Iranian was now detained at the airport police prison cell. He will undergo inquest for violating the law.
