EgyptAir hijack: 'Why I posed for photograph with hijacker'

A British man, who posed for a photograph with the hijacker of the EgyptAir flight, has revealed what happened on board.

In an exclusive interview with the BBC, Ben Innes said he and his fellow passengers discussed how best to handle the man - who said he was wearing a suicide belt.

The flight was diverted to Cyprus on Tuesday where the alleged hijacker was arrested and his "bomb" was found to be fake.

He was speaking to BBC correspondent Sophie Long.
