Détails:
Four hijackers brandished pistols carried aboard in hollowed-out books and commandeered the aircraft shortly after leaving Istanbul. They demanded to be flown to Tehran, Iran but were told this was not possible. They then demanded to be flown to Jeddah, Saudia Arabia. The aircraft landed at Diyarbakir, Turkey to refuel. During negotiations 55 passengers were released. After several hours Turkish soldiers broke through the rear door boarded and assaulted up the aisle firing rifles and pistols.
The hijackers were overpowered. Reportedly one passenger was killed and ten others were wounded including one hijacker, two crew members and seven other passengers.
