Man jumps from hijack plane cockpit
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.
