EgyptAir hijacker surrenders

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday he knows nothing about the possibility to exchange convicted Ukrainian pilot Nadia Savchenko for Russian citizens Viktor Bout and Konstantin Yaroshenko who are serving lengthy jail terms in the United States, Russian news agency TASS reports.
The hijacker emerged from the aircraft with his hands in the air, state TV said, as reported by Reuters.
”It`s over,” Cyprus`s foreign ministry said in a tweet.
As UaPosition reported earlier, on Tuesday morning, a plane was hijacked after taking off from an airport in Egypt.
The Cyprus Broadcasting Corporation reported that 55 people were on board, with a crew of 7.
After the EgyptAir plane landed at Larnaca airport, the hijacker released all the people onboard except five foreign passengers and the crew.
