Pro-Gaddafi Radical Hijacks Libyan Plane With 118 People Onboard

The media has been awash with how a hijacked Libyan airliner was diverted to Malta on Friday where it landed safely with 118 people onboard.

A media report said the hijacker told the crew he was “pro-Gaddafi” and that he was willing to let all 111 passengers leave the Airbus A320, but not with its seven crew, if his demands were met.

Former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi was killed in an uprising in 2011, and the country has been racked by factional violence since.

The captain of the Libyan passenger plane that was forced to land in Malta has informed the control tower that its hijackers are threatening to blow it up with a home-made explosive device.

It added that it was unclear what the demands were or whether the hijacker was acting alone.
