Passenger: Hijacker threatened to crash plane

Published: 02.17.14, 19:07 / Israel News

Locking the pilot out of the cockpit, an Ethiopian Airlines co-pilot hijacked a plane bound for Italy on Monday and diverted it to Geneva, where he asked for asylum, officials said.

 

One passenger said the hijacker threatened to crash the plane if the pilot didn't stop pounding on the locked door. Another said passengers were terrified "for hours" as the plane careened across the sky. (AP)
