The three hijackers of an airplane from a Mexican airline - Aeromexico Flight 576 - that threaten to blow it up have freed most of the passengers unharmed but kept the crew members.

The men demand to speak to Mexican President Felipe Calderon.

The three unidentified men are reportedly from Colombia and Bolivia, according to the Mexican media. They had attached explosives to their bodies and threatened to blow up the airplane if their demand is not met. The men were not able to enter the cockpit because it was locked, according to reports.

The men are keeping the airplane currently parked in Mexico City's airport.

The Aeromexico's airplane had 104 passengers on board, according to Mexico's media. It was hijacked in Cancun.
