MEXICO CITY – Prosecutors charged a Bolivian pastor with sabotage, illegal retention of people and attack on a means of transport in this week’s hijacking of a plane from the resort city of Cancun, the attorney general’s office said Friday.

The charges carry total maximum sentences of up to 43 years in prison. The illegal retention charge is used to describe a lesser form of kidnapping.

Jose Flores, who was taken to a Mexico City prison to await a judge’s decision on whether he should stand trial, has said he doesn’t regret threatening to detonate a fake bomb aboard an AeroMexico commercial jetliner Wednesday.
