Breaking News: An Ethiopian Airlines Plane was hijacked and diverted to Geneva, Switzerland. Turns out the hijacker was the co-pilot.

Breaking News: The week starts out with an airplane hijacking. Didn't hear about that in a long time. Since all these security regulations since 911 hijacking a plane got a bit difficult unless you are the co-pilot. The latest reports out of Geneva say that the co-pilot took control over the Ethiopian Airlines plane when the pilot was on the toilet.

All passengers are save and the Hijacker is in custody of police. He was unarmed. The hijacker wants asylum in Switzerland. Bad timing as Switzerland just voted on stronger immigration rules. 

The Ethiopian Airlines Plane was flying from Addis Ababa and was Rome bound before it got diverted. The Geneva airport is now open again as the incident is under control.
