Confidence Rating:
Ethiopian Airlines flight ET-702 from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, to Rome, Italy, was hijacked during the flight by the co-pilot.
The co-pilot waited for the captain to go to the toilet so he could lock him self in the cockpit. The flight continued to Geneva, Switzerland were it landed about 06:00.
The co-pilot then climbed down from the cockpit window using the emergency escape rope and surrendered to police. He was unarmed and requested asylum in Switzerland as he feared persecution in Ethiopia.
