Prosecutor- General Nabil Sadeq left here for Larnaca, Cyprus, to follow up investigation with SeifEddin Mostafa, the hijacker of an Egyptian plane in March.


Mostafa hit international headlines in late March when he hijacked a domestic EgyptAir flight with a fake suicide belt he threatened to detonate in a bid to force the pilot to divert to Turkey, Greece or Larnaca.

Upon arrival to Cyprus, he made several demands including delivering a letter to his Cypriot ex-wife, a meeting with an EU official, the release of female political prisoners in Egypt, and political asylum.

The Egyptian top prosecutor will meet with a number of officials to discuss extraditing the Egyptian hijacker.
