As soon as I saw this story my first thought was, "False Flag". Talk about obvious! In pre-Internet years people would have swallowed it whole. Nasty Iranians doing what they like to do best after Friday prayers! What a crock of shyte. These two have to be the most incompetant terrorists ever! Leaving back doors open and allowing people to escape through windows. What a bunch of morons. It's almost like they wanted to get caught! Identified "tentatively" as a Turk and a Palestinian. Identified by whom? The Israelis perhaps?!?! Don't believe it kids, this has the CIA and Mossad's grubby little fingerprints all over it. By way of deception shalt thou do war!
Two hijackers of an Istanbul-bound airliner have given themselves up to authorities, Turkish television has reported.
The surrender brings to an end a five-hour ordeal that began when the airplane, operated by Atlas-Jet and with 136 passengers on board, was seized shortly after taking off from Northern Cyprus by two men claiming to have a bomb and demanding to be flown to Tehran. They have tentatively been identified as a Turkish national and a Palestinian.
The plane made an emergency landing in the resort town of Antalya, where most of the passengers were able to escape after forcing open a rear door.
Both pilots also jumped clear, and only the hijackers, two stewardesses and three passengers remained on board as negotiations with police began. The hijackers eventually freed their remaining hostages before surrendering a short time later.
Earlier, some passengers who escaped reported that the hijackers claimed they were members of al-Qaeda, although others said they did not identify themselves.
