Federal health authorities were responding Tuesday to reports that 11 people were ill on a flight from Mexico to Miami International Airport.

The Aeromexico flight from Merida, Mexico, landed at the airport and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was meeting with authorities in Miami to assess the situation, said Von Roebuck, a CDC spokesman. He had no further details.

Airport spokesman Marc Henderson could not confirm the illnesses. He said the plane landed at about 1:10 p.m.
