Ohio woman claims discrimination on flight at Detroit airport

by

DETROIT (WKZO) -- An Ohio woman is suing Frontier Airlines, the FBI, and others over alleged racial discrimination at Detroit Metropolitan Airport after a flight on the tenth anniversary of the September 11th attacks.

Shoshana Hebshi, who is of Jewish and Arab descent, claims she was forced off the plane, strip searched, and jailed for four hours.  The American Civil Liberties Union represents Hebshi and she says the litigation should force changes.

Two men in Hebshi's row were questioned about what other passengers believed was suspicious activity, but the Sylvania woman had no association with them.
