An attempt to hijack an Aeroflot Tupolev 154 to Stockholm, Sweden, failed when the crew persuaded the hijacker to allow a stopover landing in Minsk.. The aircraft was on a domestic flight from Leningrad to Lvov when a male passenger indicated that he would detonate an explosive device unless the aircraft was
diverted to Stockholm. When the aircraft landed in Minsk, the passenger was arrested.
