MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A Delta Air Lines flight headed for Minneapolis returned to Japan because of some disruptive passengers.

Delta says the Boeing 747 was three hours into a 13-hour flight Monday when the decision was made to turn back to Japan, where the passengers were removed by Japanese authorities.

Delta spokeswoman Susan Elliott did not have details on the nature of the disruption. The flight carried 383 passengers and 14 crew members.

The Star Tribune says the airline will add a flight from Japan to Minneapolis Tuesday to accommodate the stranded passengers.
