Mexico City - An Aeromexico Boeing 787 travelling from Mexico City to Paris made an emergency landing in Ireland on Monday after a fire alarm went off in the cargo hold, authorities said.

Aeromexico said flight was diverted in accordance to safety procedures and that the Dreamliner, which was carrying 181 passengers, landed "without mishap."
