Hijackers have taken a plane in Mauritania and have landed it in the Canary islands.
 



An Air Mauritania Boeing 737 passenger plane hijacked on an internal flight has flown to the Spanish Canary Islands after stopping for fuel in the Western Sahara, Mauritanian officials said.

"It has gone to the Canaries," a source close to the presidency told Reuters. The head of the Mauritanian state news agency said the plane had already touched down.

The police officer did not say how many passengers were on board or how many hijackers were involved, but said they wanted the plane to travel to Paris.

More to come as updates come in. It seems the hijackers want to take the plane to Paris for some reason. There is at least one armed person on board.

Wow, that was a quick hijacking.
:d
At least there are no reported deaths, and the suspect has been taken into custody.
I wonder what exactly happened?
