Indonesian flight grounded after passengers revolt over sacks of stinky durian in cargo hold


An Indonesian flight was grounded for an hour on Monday after passengers kicked up a stink about what was in the hold - dozens of sacks of durian, arguably the world’s smelliest fruit.

Footage of the incident, uploaded to Facebook by a passenger named Amir Zidane, shows travellers milling around on the tarmac as aircrew unload the offending cargo, whose smell has been likened to rotten onions, turpentine and dirty gym socks.
