An EgyptAir Airbus A-320 from Alexandria bound for Cairo was hijacked yesterday and flown to Larnaca airport in Cyprus.
Once on the tarmac, passengers were progressively released, including this man seen climbing out of a cockpit window.
In the end, all the passengers and crew were unharmed, and the hijacker surrendered. The Cypriot authorities arrested the Egyptian hijacker and found him wearing a fake explosives belt.
Officials said he was "psychologically unstable" and motivated by personal reasons.
