|Seif al-Din Mustafa, 58 , has been accused of hijacking an airliner last week, according to local media|
Mustafa, used a 'home -made' fake suicide belt consisting of cellphone covers and some loose wires sticking out. This was sufficient to cause the Captain to comply with Mustaphas' demand to divert the Egypt domestic flight to Cyprus.
A hijack was declared and the EgyptAir flight forced it to fly to Larnaca. He's been held in Cyprus and the extradition process is expected to be fast-tracked, AFP & BBC reported.
