WORLD IN BRIEF : NORWAY : Hijacking by Bosnian Ends Peacefully

November 04, 1994|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

A Bosnian hijacker surrendered after commandeering an airliner with 129 people aboard over northern Norway and demanding that aid supply lines be opened to Muslim areas in Bosnia-Herzegovina. "It is the third winter. It is very cold," the 25-year-old refugee said in a tape recording released to Norwegian media. He threatened to kill the passengers if police stormed the plane, parked on a darkened tarmac at Gardermoen Airport just north of Oslo. After negotiating with police, he surrendered without violence.
