Passengers aboard a Turkish Airlines flight from Oslo over-powered a would-be hijacker who tried to storm the cockpit claiming he had a bomb.
The Boeing 737-800, which was carrying 60 passengers, including a child, and seven crew members, was en route from the Norwegian capital to Istanbul.
The man, identified as 40-year-old Cumar Yasar, put on a ski mask and began shouting ‘I have a bomb’ before two passengers were able to restrain him.
When police in Istanbul entered the plane to arrest Yasar they found one of the passengers sitting on him.
