An attempt to hijack a plane on a domestic flight from Russia’s far eastern city of Magadan ended peacefully this morning. The lone hijacker was either overpowered or gave himself up (reports differ) after the plane landed in Moscow, and all 147 people on board have been released unharmed. Earlier, the hijacker was said to be demanding a $10 million ransom and an onward flight to Switzerland. (BBC, December 10)
