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.

I have been trying to find out the reasons for this but so far

The goal of the hijacking were not yet known.


I guess we just have to wait and see what is going to happen next.


In these times we live in I thought plane hijacking would have been a thing of the past…..

I am not sure if it is a protest of sorts or if something bigger is planned but negotiations are underway from what I can tell.

Info is starting to dribble through now.
This makes some sense.

The Boeing was carrying some members of the Darfur Transitional Authority in charge with the implementation of Darfur Peace Agreement from Minawi group.


But so far no demands seem to be made and the negotiations are slow.


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.
