EgyptAir hijacker may have personal motives- Cyprus broadcaster

ATHENS, March 29 (Reuters) - Cyprus broadcasting (CYBC) reported that the hijacker of an EgyptAir plane that was forced to land in Cyprus on Tuesday may have personal motives.

The hijacker had an ex-wife in Cyprus, CYBC said.

Witnesses said the hijacker threw a letter on the apron of the airport in Larnaca, written in Arabic, asking that it be delivered to his ex-wife, who is Cypriot. (Reporting by Michele Kambas; Editing by Angus MacSwan)
