A flight within Libya was hijacked and diverted to Malta on Friday morning, where it landed with 118 people on board. After several hours, the passengers and crew were all evacuated and the two male hijackers surrendered, the Maltese prime minister says.
The hijackers were armed with a hand grenade and at least two pistols, Prime Minister Joseph Muscat said at a press conference.
The passengers were released in waves, without any apparent violence.
