Narrative:
Some ten minutes after flight LH1667 had departed from Munich's Franz Josef Strauss Airport, Germany, a male passenger grabbed one of the flight attendants and threatened her with a part of a razor blade. He then dragged her into a toilet when two other flight attendants came over in an attempt to free their colleague.
The 28-year old hijacker from Kosovo shouted some demands in Albanian but he was not understood.
The flight crew returned to Munich were a safe landing was carried out at 11:45. All passengers and crew deplaned and a policeman and interpreter were able to convince the man to surrender.
