The Sudanese airliner was hijacked after takeoff from Nyala (UYL). The aircraft diverted to Kufrah, Libya after authorities in Egypt refused permission for it to land in Cairo. The hijackers demanded to be flown to France. The next day all passengers were released by the hijackers. And later that day, both hijackers surrendered.
