Liner A320, captured by unknown, sat in Cyprus


The Egyptian airline and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Cyprus have confirmed the seizure of the MS18 flight.

The plane went from Alexandria to Cairo, on board - 51 passenger and 7 crew members.

Communication with the crew disappeared about half an hour after takeoff. In Cairo, the liner was supposed to land at 8: 30 MSK.

“An unknown man who captured the plane threatened the commander and passengers, which would undermine the suicide belt if his demands were not met. The captain of the liner managed to inform dispatchers in Cairo that the plane was hijacked and would follow to Cyprus, ”the message says.

According to preliminary information, there are no Russians on board A320.

Cyprus special services are negotiating with the invader. The offender demanded to withdraw from the airport police.

During the negotiations, it was possible to free almost all passengers. 4 aliens were left hostage and the entire crew. Meanwhile, there is an assumption that there may be more hostages on board - about 20 people.

The media conveyed the name of the car thief - this is the Egyptian Ibrahim Samaha. Negotiations with law enforcement officers, he leads through the pilot.

Also, it was reported that the offender "could have personal motives: his ex-wife is in Cyprus."

It is noted that earlier the hijacker demanded to fly to Turkey, but the aircraft commander refused, citing the lack of fuel.

      The original way to escape - hijacking an airplane (especially by a respected professor) will interestingly give him watered. shelter after that ???

            On the news right now they said that his ex-wife lives in Cyprus and he wrote a letter to her before that.
            That is, as in the "comedy club" ("I want to become a Hach"):
            - "Did you do it because of love?
            Because of lubvi I came and came to my death ?! "

                Someone clearly does not want Russian tourists returning to rest in Egypt. Maybe Turkey, in this way, wants to stake out the rest of the Russians at their resorts? - Why did the hijacker want to fly to Turkey first, and not immediately to Cyprus?

            Yes God is with them, actions. But what are the consequences. The resumption of tourism with Russia is canceled indefinitely as it once again showed and proved that there was still security in Egyptian airports. The Egyptians are sorry, again the floor of the hotels will be empty.
            Who benefits from this? You don’t have to say much ...

        The FSB completely inspected and closed the "holes" in the mezhnar airports of Egypt, they changed employees, trained them, added salaries, cameras, and left specialists.
        The March-April season has already begun, but Ridna Ta-Kemshchina will be "opened" only in mid-late April, when it is hot both in ancient monuments with museums and on the beaches. But - even then bread, the country will be taken out of the crisis, and it will be possible for our "beach-goers" and fans of history to travel to their "Mecca". Britta and Deutsche pull up. And the chureks suck the Coca-Cola-colored lollipop.

          Straight in all? Or only in the directions in which our airlines operate? More like a beautiful kickback to us for the return of tourist activity.

            In all mezhnars. This is not only AB "Hurghada" (there, incidentally, since the airfield was a military mess and there was no), and Sharm, but also Luxor and Cairo. I personally flew with the first woman to Hurghada in 2007, I was strained with excursions, because there was little time and time, well, the bus 4 hours to Wasit (Luxor-Karnak) plus 4 back, and there the volume from the DC to the new museum, well, at least three hours at sunset were given to walk along Ipet-Sut (Karnak complex). With its present was already after the dispersal of the Muesli-Bratva Sisi-1 Menmaatra. Immediately to Luxor, and there the Sheratons made a reservation on the "hotel card" and not only was the whole Wasit up and down, but also the suburbs - Kapta, Abu Simbel, the ruins of Akht-Ethan, the capital of the late period, cop Men-Nefer (Memphms - south of Cairo) 3 weeks, but little serano. Only on Wasit / Thebes / Luxor 11 days took and not all climbed, with the permission of the shooting, moreover. Someone from the "non-beachgoers" flies with the same purpose to Cairo. Never mind about Egyptologists-archaeologists, builders, military consultants, gas workers / oil workers / nuclear scientists. To Alexandria too. Mirikosy and Japs are not "beachgoers" at all, if it were not for the filthiness of Cairo and the weak "othelization" of Luxor (although there are enough places in expensive ones) - they fly there and buy a cruise along the sacred Hapi.
            I myself wanted to poke my head into this bunch, but where did the analyst-armed man go to the security of the airports, I did not go through the casting. But he visited Syria as a "sales consultant" of ROE and Rostvert on devices and means of their destruction. November December. Ash-Shayrat (not Khmeimim - our third AB - Dahlak will also be reopened).
            If you have questions - see Persinph and write to the RM.

            Yes. Putin leaked? belay CIA and NASA indignation!

          In April 2016, Egypt awaits the arrival of Russian experts in the countrywho will conduct a final inspection of the country's airports.

          Apparently, depending on the results of the inspection, a decision will be made to resume or further suspend air links between Russia and Egypt.

          It is reported by RIA Novosti on Thursday, March 24, with reference to the Ministry of Aviation of Egypt.

      As far as we know, Russian special services had to test Egyptian airports for safety, so that this summer our tourists could splash again in the Red Sea. Apparently, the test failed early. In the Crimea this summer will not overflow.
      Well, the world is plunging into a new round of terror, although it seemed that after September 11 it was impossible to capture the plane. It's one thing at the airport to arrange a terrorist attack, and another thing is to capture the plane bypassing the sterile zone. This can be done only by special services as for me. Looks like they want the Muslim Brotherhood to come to power in Egypt, because tourism is the source of secular power. hi

          I know, but a hijacked plane is a weapon if that ... And he could not necessarily sit in Cyprus ... but in the same Hurghada or fall directly on Hurghada, where there are many foreign tourists.

        In Egypt, not a foot! While there savages run around the streets, there is nothing to do there. Rest and die rested? Do not be seduced. Arabs are awesome gouging. Only a bigger gouge can trust them with your safety. Order will never be there.

        Apparently 0,2 billion Euros (as a friend wrote above) turned out to be small, we still need to inspect. ))) Well, at least beat, as I saw the amount and our FSB I have another idea how the rollback does not appear)

    however, we again return to the topic of ensuring control over the safety of transportation ... there have not been such seizures for a long time ... if the "suicide belt" is not a dummy ... an urgent need to deal with the organization of flights in Egypt (and in other countries it is worth checking) ... the risks are too great for a large number of people ..

    And how do you respect this thought. Recently, our tourists have almost left Turkey and Egypt. And literally in the last month, versions of our return to Egypt began to appear in the media. It’s a shame for the Turks, yes. Well, they found some kind of weirdo to break off the hopes of the Egyptians and ours. You look, now the Turks will start to shout ours in every way, discounts will offer great. Of course, I could be wrong, but I read one note by E. Satanovsky, and a thought flashed through me.

    there is no suicide bomber on it. A belt is worn only to silently bring it into action. According to anyone, he surrenders. A classic denouement ... he released some hostages ... then he also released .... then he left a minimum of the weakest so that if anything according to the cabbage soup you can’t dig it out .... then he will let everyone go and come out with his hands up ... sometimes it’s not clear why people are stupid.
