Two hijackers, armed with a knife and a fake bomb, hijacked the aircraft carrying 304 passengers and 11 crewmembers. The aircraft was en-route from Tehran, Iran to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia and was diverted after a stop in Shiraz. The aircraft then flew on to Bahrain for refueling and to Cairo before landing in Rome.
