Libya hijack: Malta forces surround plane carrying 118

The Afriqiyah Airways plane was surrounded by Maltese troops on the runway
A stand-off is under way at Malta International Airport where a Libyan jet carrying 118 people landed after being hijacked on a domestic route.
The Airbus A320 was flying inside Libya for Afriqiyah Airways when it was diverted.
At least one man claiming to have a hand grenade threatened to blow up the plane, according to local reports.
Maltese Prime Minister Joseph Muscat said that his country's security forces were standing by.
It is unclear what the demands are being made by the hijacker. Some media say there is more than one hijacker.
The mayor of Sebha in Libya, Colonel Hamed Al-Khayali, told the BBC there were 111 passengers on board the flight plus seven crew members.
Mr Muscat said on Twitter that the passengers list included 82 men, 28 women and one baby.
