An Italian male hijacker claimed to have an explosive device in his carry-on bag that he could detonate using a remote control. After the flight landed at Paris-CDG, he demanded a televised news conference to promote his new political movement for the unification of Europe. The hijacker surrendered after several hours of negotiations; he was later determined to be mentally ill.
