Egypt's Interior Ministry has released surveillance footage of an Egyptian man suspected of hijacking an EgyptAir plane.

Footage shows the man passing through security at Borg El-Arab airport in Alexandria. The hijacker forced the plane to land at Larnaca airport on the southern coast of Cyprus.

After the aircraft landed, negotiations began and everyone on board was freed except for three passengers and four crew members.

Soon after, Cypriot television footage showed several people leaving the plane via the stairs and another man climbing out of the cockpit window and running off. The hijacker then surrendered to the authorities.
