The Libyan plane hijackers surrender

The hijacking episode of the Afriquyah Airline Airbus 320 that was diverted Friday from Libya to Malta has ended. The hijackers who had threatened to blow up the plane turned themselves in to the authorities in Valetta. No one was hurt. They were campaigning for a new party supporting the late Libyan ruler Muammar Qaddafi who was killed in 2011 in a US-backed operation.
