A Ukrainian passenger on an Istanbul-bound flight claimed there was a bomb on board and tried to hijack the plane to Sochi, Russia, where the Winter Olympics are kicking off.

An F-16 fighter plane was scrambled as soon as the pilot signalled there was a hijacking attempt and escorted the plane safely to Istanbul’s Sabiha Gokcen airport, its original destination.

Turkey’s state-run TRT television said authorities convinced the man to give himself up and he was taken into police custody, but there was no confirmation from the Transport Ministry.
