An Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 aircraft, on a domestic flight from Bahar Dar to Addis Ababa with 115 passengers and eight crew members, was hijacked by two Ethiopian students. The hijackers ordered the pilot to refuel in Djibouti in order to fly to Sanaa, Yemen. But authorities in Djibouti refused to refuel the aircraft when it landed. After four hours of negotiation, the hijackers surrendered to authorities. The hijackers, who were not in possession of a real weapon, stated they had hijacked the aircraft in order to seek employment in Europe. No injuries were reported.
