An Arab terrorist tried to hijack a Boeing-737 owned by CSA Czech air carrier, bound from Dubai for Prague. This information was confirmed to journalists by CSA press-secretary Daniel Plovajko.
The terrorist threatened to use a knife against air hostesses and passengers and tried to break into the cockpit. The Boeing had to make an emergency landing in Manama, the capital of Bahrain, where the terrorist was detained by local police.
In Manama, the airliner was inspected by secret services and the military. No dangerous objects were found, and the CSA jetliner set course for Prague.
The Arab gunman was going to the Czech capital on a student visa he received in the Czech Republic.
