CAIRO, December 23. /TASS/. Two hijackers that had taken over a Libyan plane have surrendered, Malta’s Prime Minister Joseph Muscat said.
"Hijackers surrendered, searched and taken in custody," he wrote on Twitter.
The Sky News Arabia TV channel has shown security forces seizing a man coming out of the plane.
The Afriqiyah Airways flight, on service from Libya’s southwestern city of Sabha to the capital, Tripoli, was taken over by two hijackers on Friday morning. They demanded the plane head to Malta, 500 kilometers from Libya’s coast. There were 111 passengers (82 men, 28 women and a child) and seven crew members on board.
After holding talks with Malta’s authorities, the hijackers released all passengers and crew members.
