Well this is bad news.

UPDATE – the identify of the hijacker has been released:

End update.

The New York Post says there might be a bomb on board:

Egypt’s civil aviation authority says an EgyptAir plane has been hijacked while flying from the Egyptian coastal city of Alexandria to the capital, Cairo.

A Cypriot government official says the hijacked plane landed on Tuesday morning at the airport in Larnaka and that there are suspicions of a bomb on board.

A second Cypriot official says there “seems like there’s more than one hijacker.” He says there have been no demands other than that police vehicles move away from the aircraft.

Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity under regulations.

Remember Egypt has been targeted by ISIS before – let’s hope this isn’t another terrorist attack.
