EgyptAir hijack: Man jumps from plane cockpit window

A man was filmed jumping from a hijacked EgyptAir plane cockpit window shortly before the hijacker surrendered.

Flight MS181 was taken over after a passenger, identified by Cypriot officials as Seif Eldin Mustafa, claimed to be wearing a suicide explosive belt.

Reports said he wanted to talk to his estranged wife in Cyprus, and the Cypriot president said the hijack was not a terrorist incident.

But other reports said he was seeking the release of female prisoners in Egypt.
