Five passengers were injured when a Chinese flight was forced to divert to an alternate airport after a mechanical failure, authorities said Tuesday.

Flight JD5759, operated by Capital Airlines, was en route from Beijing to Macao. It was forced to divert to and land in Shenzhen, south China's Guangdong Province, at 11:58 a.m. Tuesday, said a source of the Shenzhen airport.

The Shenzhen airport closed down a runway for three hours and warned that there could be flight delays Tuesday.
