Terminal 2 at Dublin Airport
Three people were taken hostage when a bus was hijacked at Dublin Airport in the early hours of this morning.
Independent.ie understands the shuttle bus belonging to a well-known hotel was stolen from the roadway in front of Terminal 2 around 1am.
Two hijackers locked the doors, effectively trapping the passengers already on board, and took off in the direction of the M1 motorway.
A source said the traumatised passengers were eventually allowed out near Julianstown, Co Meath, a 30-minute drive away.
