The Hijacker Selfie!!

This MIGHT just be the craziest selfie anyone’s ever taken, and that’s not an exaggeration.

A man named Seif Eldin Mustafa hijacked an EgyptAir flight from Alexandria to Cairo yesterday morning because he wanted to see his ex-wife in Cyprus.  And he had a BOMB strapped around his waist.

26-year-old Ben Innes of Leeds, England was a passenger on the flight.  And when the flight landed in Cyprus and swarms of cops surrounded it . . . Ben asked Seif if they could take a picture together.

Ben says, quote, “I thought, why not?  I figured if his bomb was real, I had nothing to lose anyway, so I took a chance to get a closer look at it.”

Seif was down for a photo, so Ben posed next to him with a grin on his face while a flight attendant took the picture.  (Even though he didn’t take the photo himself, it’s a picture he got of himself . . . so does it qualify as a selfie?)

The hijacker’s bomb turned out to be fake, by the way.

Seif surrendered after a few hours and he was arrested.  An Egyptian official said, quote, “He’s not a terrorist, he’s an idiot.”
