Man Attempts to Hijack South African Flight

A 21-year old Zimbabwean student attempted to hijack a South African Airlines flight from Cape Town to Johannesburg and divert it to Maputo, Mozambique, on Saturday.  His efforts were thwarted by passengers, including an off-duty pilot, who wrestled away the hypodermic needle he was using to threaten crew members.  The airline and police are now under attack for the way they handled the incident, including police who boarded the plane and, allegedly, attacked the passengers who stopped the hijacker.
