South Korean 'nut rage' woman freed

Heather Cho forced steward off after 'not being served right'

(ANSA) - Rome, May 22 - Former Korean Air exec Heather Cho, whose father runs her country's flag carrier, was freed on appeal Friday after being jailed for one year in February for obstructing aviation safety during a row over nuts.
    Judges said Cho should now serve a suspended sentence.
    Cho forced a plane to return to the gate in New York last December and offload a steward because she did not like the way she had been served nuts.
    Cho apologised and quit the national airline.
