Fake hijack; what does it mean for future security?
On Tuesday 29th March 2016, a domestic Egypt Air flight was forced to be diverted to Larnaca airport in Cyprus after reports claimed that the aircraft was hijacked. After a tense negotiation period, the hijacker, who was reported to be wearing an explosive vest, released all of the passengers and surrendered himself to the authorities.
In an interesting twist of events, it was reported by airline officials that the vest the hijacker was wearing was a fake and that one of the motives of the hijacker was to get in contact with his estranged wife. The incident was later ruled out as not terrorism-related.
Although this six hour siege ended peacefully, what does it mean for airport security especially after the tragic events at the Brussels airport the week before? It is more than likely that the security procedures in all airports will be stepped up within a matter of days, if not hours. Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.

“Tremendous 12’ form human arrow to help police find thieves
Footage of twelve children forming a human arrow, to help police helicopters catch two fleeing burglars, wasreleased on April 1st 2016 by the Surrey Police.The children aged between six and twelve, who have since been dubbed the ‘tremendous 12’ had been taking part in an Easter Egg Hunt on Good Friday when they noticed the police helicopter above. The helicopter had been called by Surrey Police after reports of intruders in a disused building.
The human arrow, which was first thought to have been an April Fool’s Day prank when released by the Police department, successfully directed the helicopter to the suspects, who were caught.Describing the event, a nine-year-old girl told reporters “It was really noisy and we could see it said ‘police’ on the bottom. Then we saw a man running along the side of the field. We could see him but the helicopter couldn’t because it was hovering over the woods.”
The girl continued to explain the event “We saw the man take off his jumper and put it around his head. Then he dropped it and ran off into the woods and we pointed and shouted at the helicopter, ‘He’s gone that way!’”
As the helicopter was pointing in the opposite direction the children decided to make an arrow. “Two of my friends said, “Let’s get into an arrow” and we got into position on the ground.”
The children also said that they feel ‘proud’ of their actions – I bet, very well done to the ‘tremendous twelve’!
