The 737, on a flight from Algiers to Lille via Oran, was hijacked by a 55-year old mentally-ill passenger after takeoff from Algiers. He threatened the crew with what he claimed was a grenade and demanded to be flown to Geneva. The crew convinced him that a stop at Oran was necessary to refuel. At Oran the hijacker surrendered to security services.
