A Russian airliner made an emergency landing in Prague after an attempted hijacking, Czech police have said.

A police spokesman told Reuters the hijacker has been "pacified".

Chief of Czech police Vladislav Husak said there had been an attempted hijacking on the Airbus A-320 jet.

This is the first hijacking to hear about in a while. This is still a developing story so there is little information. However from what we have been told, it sounds as if there is only one hijacker. The report of an explosive device may prove to be incorrect because if there had been one it would have probably been used. This may be blamed on OBL and his network, but that may end up being false, and a lone terrorist is not there style.

well, he probably told the passengers and crew that he had an explosive device, as the hijackers did on 9/11. his problems was that in this post 9/11 world, passengers and crew understand that once they are hijacked, they are as good as dead anyway. in this day and age, a hijacked aircraft ceases to be a passenger airliner and becomes a weapon of war .....so what does it matter if he says he's got a bomb? take him out and hope he's lying...because if he commandeers the aircraft chances are youre dead anyway.

good on them.

I think you are right with this statement. I am not saying he did not make an attempt to hijack the plane, or assaulted the crew. It is just when things like this happen now even if it just a drunk passenger the worst is always assumed.
hear is a thred to talk about this video. It is worth watching as it describes how this sort of thing is not being encouraged and created by the world leaders and fringe cultchers.

Well it looks like all of us who were being skepitcal about all of this is right. Hear is one of the later updates.

A Russian aircraft was forced to make an emergency landing in Prague today after a 'drunken' passenger claiming to have a bomb tried to hijack it and divert it to Cairo.



Passengers and crew on the Aeroflot flight from Moscow to Geneva managed to overpower the man as he tried to break into the cockpit.

"From what we know, the incident had nothing to do with terrorism," said Jan Subert, spokesman for the Czech counter-intelligence service, the BIS.

That seems to be pretty light...I think it'd be life in prison if he was caught here (in the U.S.) for aircraft piracy. Or death if the crime resulted in death.
