4. Ethiopian co-pilot hijacks own aircraft to seek asylum in Switzerland

(For reasons I do not understand, there does not appear to be a name for the co-pilot/hijacker)

FOX tells the story quite differently. The Co-pilot threatened to crash the aircraft if the pilot continued trying to get into the cockpit. Also they name the hijacker as Hailemedhin Abera.

Cuomo, 25, was quoted as saying the hijacker, speaking in poor English on a loudspeaker, threatened to crash the plane in response and then the oxygen masks came down.


Than you Tundra T, MZ, Fjordman and more.

    Killing of Pakistani soldiers by militants ‘heinous’ – PM (BBC, Feb 17, 2014)
    “The Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has condemned the reported killing of 23 soldiers by a Taliban faction as a “heinous” crime. Militants said in a statement on Sunday night that they had killed the soldiers, who had been held since 2010. Mr Sharif said the deaths would have a negative impact on current peace talks with the Taliban. Government negotiators cancelled a meeting with the Taliban scheduled for Monday. Shahidullah Shahid, spokesman for the main Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), said in a statement on Monday that the killings “appear to be connected to the killing of 23 of our people by the Pakistani forces since 28 January”. He said the TTP would contact the group based in the Mohmand tribal region which said it carried out the killings to find out further details. In a statement to the media, a military official denied that any TTP men in custody had been killed. “They are using this false propaganda to justify their activities,” he said…”

  2. Iran ‘may send forces to Pakistan’ after capture of guards (BBC, Feb 17, 2014)
    “Iran’s interior minister has warned it may send forces into Pakistan if it does not act to free five Iranian border guards seized 10 days ago. The men are thought to have been taken into Pakistan after being captured in Iran’s Sistan Baluchistan region.

  3. No names, no faces, no cultural background (plus plenty of hardcore leftist propaganda)… This incident may be purely imaginary after all. 😉

    “One asylum seeker has been killed and 77 injured during a second night of rioting at Australia’s immigrant detention centre in Papua New Guinea. Australian Immigration Minister Scott Morrison said the news of a death at the Manus Island was “a great tragedy”. The rioting comes after some of the detainees briefly escaped from the detention centre on Sunday. Manus Island hosts one of Australia’s offshore processing camps for asylum seekers.

    Pakistan suspends peace talks with Pakistani Taliban (CNN, Feb 18, 2014)
    “A four-member government panel had been in peace talks with the group, also known as Tehreek e Taliban Pakistan, for 13 days. But during that time, the group has carried out several deadly attacks, the office of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said. The committee unanimously decided that continuing talks was pointless until the violence stops, the office’s statement reads. The Pakistani Taliban has long been conducting an insurgency against the Pakistani government and has claimed a number of violent attacks in its history.”
