A man strapped with explosives has hijacked a passenger plane during an internal flight in Egypt.

EgyptAir flight MSR181 has now landed at Larnaca Airport in Cyprus, where all but four foreign passengers and the crew are being allowed to disembark.

Eight Britons, 10 Americans and one Irish citizen were reported to have been among the 81 passengers on board when the plane took off. The nationalities of those left on board is unknown.

The hijacker - reported by state TV to be Egyptian national Ibrahim Samaha - has asked police to leave the runway.

The Civil Aviation Ministry said the pilot was threatened by a passenger wearing a suicide belt.

A statement said: "The pilot said that a passenger told him he had an explosives vest and forced the plane to land in Larnaca."

Cypriot TV is reporting the hijacker, thought to be aged 26 or 27, has asked for political asylum and a translator.

Sky's Sherine Tadros said the plane was on an isolated part of the runway and negotiations were continuing.

The airliner took off from Alexandria at 8am.

A hijacker contacted the control tower at 8.30am (5.30am in UK) and the plane was given permission to land at 8.50am.

A crisis team including ambulances were deployed to the airport.

EgyptAir tweeted: "Our flight MS181 is officially hijacked. We'll publish an official statement now."

They later added: "The negotiations with the hijacker have resulted in the release of all the plane passengers with the exception of the crew and five (now four) foreigners."

Larnaca Airport has been closed and flights diverted to Paphos.


More innocent victims of the Religion of Peace.

It's being claimed that this one is some nutter who wants to get back with his ex-wife. If so, a box of chocolates and some flowers might have been a better idea....

Although his motives remain unclear, Cyprus' foreign minister Ioannis Kasoulides said it had not been a terrorist act, but was linked to a "family feud" involving Mustafa's estranged wife with whom he has four children.

It was later established the belt contained no explosives and was instead packed with mobile phone covers.

Police prosecutor Andreas Lambrianou said the suspect told police after his arrest: "What's someone supposed to do when he hasn't seen his wife and children in 24 years and the Egyptian government won't let him?"


Idiot. Seems to me the Egyptian government is wise not to let him see his family. If he'd tried this stunt in the US, he'd be dead right now, not bleating about his 'rights' in court.
