Hijacking Foiled in Botswana

A man was arrested yesterday for attempting to hijack an Air Botswana flight from Gabarone, Botswana, to Johannesburg, South Africa.  The nut banged on the cockpit door and threatened staff and passengers, then demanded to be let into the cockpit.  He was denied entry, and the plane landed in Johannesburg without incident.  I find it interesting that this is being nearly entirely ignored by Western media, because you can only imagine what the hell would be going on if someone tried to hijack a plane here.  But, it's in Africa, so no one cares.  Carry on.
