热点新闻:埃及劫机案有惊无险 一场“闹剧”落幕

 
【Related News】
 
3月29日,埃及人赛义夫·穆斯塔法跟全世界开了一个“玩笑”。
 
当天上午8点左右,一架埃及民航客机从埃及北部海滨城市亚历山大起飞后不久遭到武装劫持。劫机者声称其身上捆有爆炸物,要求客机掉转方向飞往塞浦路斯。随后,该客机在塞第三大城市拉纳卡的机场降落。劫机者首先释放了机上的妇女和儿童,随后又释放了一部分埃及乘客,最后劫持3名外国人和机组人员作为人质。
 
正当事态进展到最紧张的时刻,戏剧性的一幕发生了。劫机者抛出一个信封,里面是一封写给他“前妻”的4页长的信。塞警方赶紧找到这位女士,让她去做劫机者的工作。经过一番谈判,最终所有人质被安全解救,而所谓的“爆炸物”也被证实是假的。这位“劫机者”名叫赛义夫·穆斯塔法,他做出这一大胆举动只是因为跟“前妻”发生“感情纠葛”,而无关“恐怖主义”。这场劫机事件直播了足足6个多小时,一名英国人质事后在社交网站上贴出他与“劫机者”的自拍合照,像是这场“闹剧”的一个谢幕。(来源:光明日报)

CAIRO, March 29 (Xinhua) --The passengers of Egypt's previously hijacked Egyptian airplane have arrived at Cairo International Airport on Tuesday evening.
 
Earlier in the day, all 81 passengers, including 21 foreigners, were freed in Cyprus and the kidnapper was arrested.
 
EgyptAir's Airbus 320 was in a domestic flight from Alexandria to Cairo before it was hijacked by Seif-Eddin Mostafa, a 59-year-old Egyptian, who wore a fake explosive belt and forced the crew to land in Larnaca airport in Cyprus.
 
Egyptian Prime Minister Sherif Ismail, accompanied by Civil Aviation Minister Sherif Fathy who went earlier Tuesday to Cyprus, met with the passengers and crew members at the airport.
 
Most of our security experts confirmed that the belt was not explosive, the Egyptian aviation minister told reporters at the airport.
 
"The belt was not explosive and that is why it did not appear at the security check machine at the airport, without any material that can be detected," he added.
 
Egyptian Tourism Minister Mohamed Yahia Rashed told Xinhua that the incident has "a positive sign" as it showed the professional and quick response of the Egyptian authorities.
 
"Within hours, we successfully saved all the passengers and no one of them was hurt, while the hijacker was arrested," the minister said, adding that this is a testimony for the Egyptian security system and a message that Egypt is safe.
Egyptian official reports said the incident was not terrorism-related and that the hijacker was "a fraudulent and a forger" who faced relevant charges in lawsuit cases.
 
The Interior Ministry said in an earlier statement on Tuesday that the man had a Cypriot ex-wife. He had been sentenced to one year in jail but escaped amid the 2011 political turmoil, then went back to prison in January 2014 and was released last year.
