March 8, 2012 (KHARTOUM) – A 19-year old student made a failed attempt to hijack a Sudanese plane before landing at Al-Obayid airport in North Kordofan state, according to press reports.

The state’s police chief Maj. Gen. Kamal Moussa Zein was quoted as saying yesterday that the hijacker broke into the cockpit waving a knife 40 minutes after takeoff. He threatened the crew and asked them to re-route the flight to Uganda.

The plane was flying from Wau airport in South Sudan’s Western Bahr el Ghazal State on its way to Khartoum, the capital of Sudan, when the incident happened.

One of the flight engineers however, managed to overpower the hijacker and stripped him from the knife he was carrying.

The plane landed in Al-Obayid airport and authorities took the hijacker into custody. Preliminary investigations revealed that he is from South Darfur state and studies in Uganda. His name was not released.

The knife used by the student was hidden in his handbag, the police said. None of the passengers aboard the flight were harmed.

    Very unfortunate, this young boy may be a disciple of Alshabab, Boko haram, Alqaeda and any islamic organization in North Sudan. Northerners entering South Sudan may one day be a threat to our National security because they are Islamist and terrorist, Hence their coming needs good verification from security organs

      well Mr.viper
      southerners entering north sudan can one day be a threat to our healthiness because they are all dirty full of bacteria and walk without shoes in mud and all that. that’s why we are trying to kick those 700,000 southerners out of our country because they can help their brothers entering sudan illegally.

How about the lives of innocent Darfure, Nubian,Blue nile mascre not forgeting recent genocide in Abyiei and South Sudan. Where is the future in your islamized sudan? What a gov’t that believe in the killing of her citizen. Rescue your poor president from going to hague.

              your the next retarded
              Awadia’s case is a normal incident which happened by accident. these sort of incidents happen in many places around the world, specially USA. the number of 300,000 darfuri dead is propoganda and we all know it is part of destabilizing and weakening sudan. the people of blue nile and nuba mountains all support ncp. SAF was even celebrating ramadan with people of BN.

                Northern Sudanese,

                You are buzzing that "Awadia’s case is normal," only in Sudan ha? Look at this conspiracy to murder. Only those acting in primitive laws believe committing acts of murder was lawful. That is why we will encourage the Darfuri, Nubians and the people of Blue Nile to join South Sudan by breaking away from you murderers.

              oh viper
              as i said before, all this shit is part of a weakening sudan process. the world knows sudan is not a terrorist state except the US which itself is a terrorist nation. a nation that has killed the majority of the lands natives. but after all, this shit won’t help your dying poor dirty nation.

    They intention of this young man is not clear,i don’t think he is the one who commit this crime,because he is a darfuri.He cannot have ill intention on Southerners unless he is an NCP agent like Al-haj Adam the second vice president in the Sudan who uses to criticise the Southerners for nothing,forgetting that 40% of South population are darfurians.

      sure @ Chok Deng,
      Indeed the young man only get panic due to his nationality in the passport and knowing that after reaching/ landing in Khartoum airport he will be arrested for entering Khartoum. however that is stupidity the road from WAU via RUMBEK to Juba then Uganda is next option then movement on air with absent minded. your intention failed to help you i can do if Bashir or Horoun were ther

    It may be a false news beccause, a 19-year old boy can not attempt a knife-attack killing on the pilot and fail to make it possible.

    Besides, where is his country of origin?

    Thanks.

      Nonsense, how did he enters the plane with the knife? does it mean there are no detective machines there?, another lie, as quoted ’the boy waved the knife as the plane took off’, lie following lie like what they said during awadia’s killing ’that the police shot in the air’, and awadia is not residing in the sky. short minded arabs, i use to say they can’t see far, what a fake way to lie!!

    He threatened the crew and asked them to re-route the flight to Uganda? And that the plane was flying from Wau airport in South Sudan on its way to Khrtm when the incident happened and the flight engineers however, managed to overpower the hijacker and stripped him from the knife he carrying? By now the engineer would have been demised, 19 is an adult. this is a deliberate false message from NIF!

      INTELLIGENT ANALYSIS ON ARAB MESSAGE: This is a pure political language; The Flight symbolize life, the young man is the young born nation, the crew is the SPLM/A and the NCP members both debating on national issues occurring between South and North Sudan scuffling each selves to finding the black African New born nation as a young nation and too strong for them to overcome.

        Viper, Chock, JJ et al,

        The plausible outcome of all this saga involving the Dark Sudanesse and the immigrant Sudanese, who claim to be clean because they live in the city while those living in the forests of Shendy so stinky and dirty as they live in the desert, find all exuses to murder. There is no way any one can get into the plane with a knife surpassing all passengers.
