According to DailyMail (UK), the attackers who are believed to be armed with grenades forced the Afriqiyah Airways A320 plane to land in Malta where armed soldiers have surrounded it on the runway.

Officials in Malta have described the incident as an “unlawful interference” and have ordered diversion of other planes until further notice.

Hijackers are said to have demanded the release of Gaddafi’s son Saif al Islam Gaddafi from prison.

President Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca of Malta after being briefed of the incident called for the public to exercise calm.

“Following the news re #Afriqiyah Airways @Maltairport, I appeal for everyone to remain calm and follow official updates,” she tweeted.

It took several hours of negotiations by the Maltese soldiers to ensure all victims were set free.

The hijackers later freed the men but authorities are battling to unravel the motive for skyjack as the culprits are now in custody.
