Officials at Shahjalal International Airport in Bangladesh are investigating how a porno flick appeared on a large TV screen in the departure lounge of their airport. The screen is normally used to display documentaries about Bangladesh, explaining the geography and culture of this Muslim nation.

The movie had been broadcast for five minutes and seen by hundreds of passengers. Immediately after the screen was turned off, the AV operator was thrown in jail for two months. The owners of a local cable firm have been summoned to help explain whether any criminal intent was involved.

Shahjalal International airport is located 13 miles north of the capital Dhaka, it is serviced by 30 different airlines, including Emirates and Singapore Airlines.

At least this time, the porn didn’t come from the airport security scanning machines
