A man recently hijacked EgyptAir flight MS181, which was said to be carrying at least 55 passengers from Alexandria to Cairo on Tuesday morning. The hijacker was forcing it to land in Cyprus.
Most of the passengers were released immediately except for seven people, including crew members, who were kept on the plane. The crisis ended several hours later, with the remaining hostages emerging from the plane and the suspected hijacker coming out of the plane with his hands up, and was then arrested.
The crazy part?
The man was interrogated and the “suicide belt” he was said to be wearing was reportedly fake.
The crazier part?
The hijacker Mustafa, 58, had an argument with his ex-wife who lives in Cyprus, and wanted to speak to her!
Cypriot authorities have confirmed the hijacking was not terrorism-related.
The Cypriot Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides had said Mr. Mustafa initially asked to speak with his ex-wife, who was brought by the police to the airport, before making a list of “incoherent” demands.

I hear the hijacker belonged to a pretty large terrorist cell known as Al-Qrazy Ex-husbands. #EgyptAir

When #EgyptAir announced “he’s not a terrorist, just an idiot” My ex wife phoned to see if it was me.
