Beschrijving:
Two armed men, both Saudi security officers employed at Jeddah’s King Abdul Aziz International Airport, hijacked Saudi Arabian Airlines flight 115, bound for London, England. The hijackers initially demanded to be flown to Damascus, Syria; however, Syrian authorities refused to accept the aircraft. Iraq agreed to allow the plane, a Boeing 777-200 aircraft, to land at Baghdad, where all of the 91 passengers and 16 crew members were released unharmed. The hijackers issued a statement demanding political reforms in Saudi Arabia, but Saudi authorities discounted any political or religious motivation for the pair. The plane and its crew and passengers returned safely to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on October 15, while the hijackers remained in Iraqi custody.
