Hijacked Egypt Air aircraft lands in Cyprus.

(Larnaca)  An Eygpt Air Airbus A320 on a scheduled run from Alexandria to Cairo with 55 passengers  and 7 crew has landed at Larnca airport this morning after been hijacked by 27 year old Ibrahim Samaha,(Who holds joint US/Egyptian citizenship) after deciding that this was the best way in which to win back his ex Cypriot wife.

EgyptAir have confirmed the hijacking on Twitter.

It appears that everybody and his dog is now claiming that a man with a suicide vest who hijacked a plane across the Med, isn't actually a terrorist. :
The Egyptian Foreign Ministry said in a statement: 'He's not a terrorist, he's an idiot. Terrorists are crazy but they aren't stupid. This guy is.
EgyptAir hijack: Larnaca hijacking 'not terrorism' 

Err, sorry to mention this, but he is a terrorist, simply because he terrorised 72 people to do as he demanded or he would kill them all. But it appears that in Europe, so scared have they become of terrorists that we can no longer refer to them as such.  Well the bBC does say that it is a loaded term. Unlike the idiots who unload their weapons or suicide bombs in which to get their way.

Well its all over, with the hijacker handing himself over to the Police, thankfully with nobody getting hurt.
