Plane arrives for Mexicans held in quarantine

A chartered Mexican plane has landed in Shanghai to pick up Mexicans quarantined over swine flu fears in what their president has denounced as a repressive and discriminatory measure.
The chartered Mexican flight also will stop in Beijing, Guangzhou and Hong Kong before returning later Tuesday to Mexico city.
The Mexicans in Shanghai are being taken to the airport in ambulances from the hotel where they have been held at since last week, even though none have showed any flu symptoms. One passenger from their flight became sick in Hong Kong, leading to the government there isolating 274 people at a hotel.
China has also sent a plane to retrieve its nationals stranded in Mexico.
