The Transportation Security Administration says a flight from Paris to Atlanta has been diverted to an airport in Maine after federal air marshals responded to a passenger causing a disturbance.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Jim Peters says Delta Air Lines Flight 273 is scheduled to land at the Bangor International Airport on Tuesday afternoon. He says the plane is an Airbus 320, but he doesn't know how many passengers and crew are aboard.

Further details aren't available.
