LARNACA, Cyprus (AP) – Officials say four crew members and three passengers remain on board an EgyptAir plane that was hijacked today and forced to land in Cyprus.

The plane was supposed to fly from Alexandria, Egypt to Cairo. It left Egypt with at least 55 passengers and seven crewmembers, and most everyone on board was released.

The president of Cyprus says he doesn’t think the hijacking has to do with terrorism, and the hijacker asked negotiators to deliver a letter to a woman in Cyprus.
