FLORIDA - JetBlue is now apologizing for putting a Florida toddler on the government no-fly list.

Riyanna, an 18-month-old who lives in Palm Beach Gardens, was boarding a flight to New Jersey earlier this week with her parents when they were ordered off a JetBlue flight.

Riyanna's parents said the child was flagged as a suspected terrorist.

The child and her family were ultimately cleared to fly, but said they were too embarrassed and refused to board the plane.

They said they believe they were picked on because of their Middle Eastern background.

The airline has now issued a statement saying a computer glitch was to blame.
