VALLETTA (Malta): The two hijackers of a Libyan internal flight have surrendered, searched and taken into custody at the Malta International Airport, Maltese Prime Minister Joseph Muscat said Friday on Twitter.

All of the 109 passengers and seven crew members had been released unharmed earlier, China’s Xinhua news agency reported.

The Libyan plane, flying a domestic route in Libya, was hijacked and landed at the Malta International Airport at 11.32am local time.

The Afriqiyah Airways flight had departed the southern Libyan city of Sebha in the morning, originally on its way to the Libyan capital Tripoli.
