Passenger Captures Footage of EgyptAir Hijacker 'Selfie'

The first video has emerged showing hijacker Seif Eldin Mustafa after he seized control of EgyptAir Flight MS181. Mustafa used a fake suicide belt to order the pilots of the plane flying from Alexandria to Cairo to divert to Larnaca airport, Cyprus, on March 29. The hijacker released the passengers and crew and surrendered to the Cypriot authorities peacefully after a standoff on the tarmac.

The video above shows the moment British man Ben Innes posed for a photograph with Seif Eldin Mustafa. Storyful has uploaded a second longer video with additional footage showing Seif Eldin Mustafa talking with the EgyptAir crew. Credit: YouTube/Huub Helthuis
