An Air Mauritania plane was hijacked by a man, armed with a gun. He entered the cockpit and ordered the pilot to fly to Morocco. The pilot disarmed the hijacker, but a shot was fired and the bullet lodged in the roof of the plane. The plane was flown to Nouakchott where the hijacker, identified as a policeman from Zouerate, was handed over to police. The hijacker offered no motive for the incident, and no injuries were incurred.
