A Biman Bangladesh Airlines flight from Dubai from Dhaka via Chittagong had an attempted hijack today. After taking off, a passenger identified as Mehedi rushed the cockpit with a gun. The flight landed at Chittagong where the passengers and all but two crew were evacuated. Commandos eventually boarded the aircraft and exchanged gunfire with the hijacker, who later died.
It was not immediately clear if the pistol or the explosives were real.
