Heather Cho quit as a Korean Air executive after it emerged she held up a flight following an outburst over the way she was served nuts. Now a South Korean court's ordered her detention because of alleged attempts at a cover-up. On her way to a detention facility on Tuesday she didn't respond to reporters' questions but said 'sorry' several times. A South Korean Transport Ministry inquiry's concluded Cho did abuse flight attendants during what's become known as the 'nut rage' incident. It also found that airline officials may have tried to cover it up. The ministry itself has come under fire over revelations of misconduct by some of its own officials, including leaks of information to the airline.
