A hijacker forced a Moroccan twin-engine plane to fly from Western Sahara to Grand Canary Island on Tuesday, then surrendered after holding 10 people hostage for hours, officials said. A police officer at Gando Airport said the man, armed with a pistol, allowed the six passengers aboard the Royal Air Maroc turboprop to leave unharmed about two hours after the plane landed at this Spanish archipelago, then surrendered and released the four crew members about four hours later.
