Iran's state radio says a man attempting to hijack a plane bound for Syria was arrested on board.
The radio says security guards on the Tehran-Damascus flight prevented the attempt and arrested the suspect. No one was hurt in the incident.
Saturday's report did not identify the would-be hijacker. The semi-official Fars news agency said the man, who was armed, had confessed to hiding a bomb on board, but that a search revealed no explosives.
