Attempted Hijacking

A Sudanese man used a knife from the in-flight meal to threaten crew members and demanded that the flight be diverted to Jerusalem, the official said. Guards on the flight were able to detain the man and no one was hurt, but it sent a chilling message. It was 10 years ago that Egypt Air Flight 990 in October, plummeted into the Atlantic Ocean, about 60 miles south of Nantucket Island, Massachusetts. All of the 217 people on board were killed. The pilot on that flight deliberately crashed the plane.
