LAHORE (Staff Report) – The world was Tuesday morning horrified to know that a domestic flight of EgyptAir was hijacked by an armed man who forced pilot to divert the plane to Cyprus, but people were greatly relieved when the hijack bid turned out to be a love affair rather than another act of terrorism.
