Puntavia Flight 811 was hijacked while en route from Berbera, Somalia, to Djibouti, Djibouti, via Borama, Somalia. The hijacker, who was accompanied by his wife, demanded to be taken to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. He carried a hand grenade that allegedly was taken on board the plane by his wife. The plane did not have sufficient fuel to fly to Jeddah, and the pilot obtained permission to land in Aden, Yemen, to refuel. Negotiations were begun by Yemeni authorities. The hijacker released the hostages unharmed; he and his wife were arrested without incident.
