EgyptAir plane hijacked

On Tuesday an Egyptian man hijacked an EgyptAir plane and forced it to divert to Cyrus. Most passengers were eventually freed and four crew members and three passengers remained on board with the hijacker. According to Egyptian and Cypriot officials, the motivation for the hijacking was unclear, but “not something that has to do with terrorism” and that it may have to do with a woman. The negotiations are ongoing and an anonymous official said the man gave negotiators the name of a woman who lives in Cyprus and asked them to give her an envelope.

The flight took off from Alexandria en route to Cairo with at least 55 passengers and seven crew members. The incident is raising questions about security at Egyptian airports just five months after a Russian aircraft crashed over the Sinai Peninsula.
