A plane was hijacked last week and yet this story was missed by most mainstream media outlets. If you did miss it… here’s the low down:
A 25-year-old passenger on board Biman Bangladesh flight BG147 to Dubai attempted to hijack the plane, informing the crew that he had a gun and some reports also suggest a bomb. Bangladeshi security forces stormed the aircraft and shot and killed the man.
All 148 passengers were evacuated safely.
