Various conflicting reports emerged as to the reason an Aero Lloyd Airbus 321 was diverted to Naples. Some agencies reported that a man had tried to hijack the flight to Tunisia, his native country, using wax candles that he said were sticks of dynamite. Other reports indicate that a mentally disturbed man had a panic attack that necessitated the diversion. Two passengers and the cabin attendant overpowered the man.
