Officials have confirmed that an Egyptian hijacker who forced a domestic flight to land in Cyprus used a fake suicide belt.

His motives remain unclear but the Cypriot president said the incident was not terrorism-related.

Footage released by Egypt's interior ministry shows the man passing through several security checks at Alexandria's Borg El Arab airport.

The drama ended with all passengers released unhurt at Larnaca airport and the man giving himself up.
