Croc causes chaos on plane

A baby crocodile

A baby croc caused chaos on a flight to Egyptian capital Cairo when it escaped from a passenger's luggage, according to airport officials.

Passengers screamed as the crocodile, which was about 30cm long, scuttled down the cabin before it was captured by crew members.

All passengers on the Egypt Air flight were asked about the reptile, but none owned up to bringing it on board.

The crocodile was handed to local authorities when the plane landed.

Reports said it will be donated to a local zoo
