Seif Eldin Mustafa hijacked EgyptAir flight MS181 whilst it was en route from Alexandria to Cairo. Remaining at the rear of the cabin throughout the incident, he showed the crew that he was wearing what appeared to be a suicide vest. Accordingly, the crew elected to follow his request to divert to Cyprus, where he eventually surrendered. During the negotiations, he demanded to speak with his ex-wife who was resident in Cyprus. Initial reports indicate that he was suffering mental health issues.
