German Man in Custody After Stealing Plane

A German man caused a stir in Frankfurt when he hijacked a small aircraft, flew it near tall buildings in the city's financial district and threatened to crash into the European Central Bank. Police have the man in custody and say the Sunday incident is apparently not tied to terrorism. NPR's Emily Harris reports.
