Libyan Plane Hijacker Finally Surrenders

The pro-Gaddafi man who hijacked and diverted a Libyan plane has finally surrendered while waving a flag associated with the late former leader, Muammar Gaddafi.

The man appeared after most of the 118 people on board had been released from the Afriqiyah Airways Airbus A320.

The domestic flight was hijacked after taking off from Sabha, bound for the Libyan capital Tripoli.

At least one man claiming to have a hand grenade threatened to blow up the plane, according to local report.

Initial information suggested the hijacker is trying to claim political asylum in Malta.

Maltese Prime Minister Joseph Muscat said that his country’s security forces were standing by. He also confirmed on Twitter that the passengers list included 82 men, 28 women and one baby.
