A Tunisian immigrant hijacked an Alitalia DC-9 aircraft with 130 passengers and seven crew members en route from Rome to Tunis. The hijacker, armed with a pistol and claiming to have a bomb in a bag, seized a flight attendant as hostage and demanded to land in Algiers . The crew refused, however, and instead landed in Tunis at 16:55, two hours and seven minutes after takeoff. The hijacker was apprehended by antiterrorist commandos. No explosive device was found and there were no injuries.
