Yesterday, the world was held in a terror grip as news of an Egyptian passenger plane headed for Cyprus was hijacked by a man who claimed to have a suicide belt . Thank goodness, the #EgyptAir hijacking situation was not as dire or terrifying as we first thought it would be. The hijacker, a certain Mr. Ibrahim Samaha, may have just wanted to speak to his ex-wife.
As the plane did land, Samaha turned himself peacefully with his hands raised. None of the passengers on the airplane were harmed. In fact, it seemed they found Mr. Samaha quite an amicable fellow, what with the selfies and all:
