Dubai - Members of a Sudanese rebel group hijacked a Sudanese aircraft with more than 90 people aboard, Arabic language media reported Tuesday.
The three hijackers were from one of the numerous rebel groups out of Sudan's troubled Darfur, where the plane originated, according to the al-Arabiya news broadcaster.
The goal of the hijacking were not yet known.
The Boeing was carrying some members of the Darfur Transitional Authority in charge with the implementation of Darfur Peace Agreement from Minawi group.
The hijackers rejected Libyan requests that they release women and children on the flight and allow provisions onto the plane, refusing any negotiations and demanding the refueling, the official said.
