    The man had demanded a meeting with the media and law enforcement agencies but the news agency gave no more details on other demands.

    Russian forces foil plane hijacking

    Russian special forces have foiled the attempted hijacking of an aircraft on a domestic flight from Mineralniye Vody, in the Caucasus region, to Moscow's Domodedovo airport.
    All 105 passengers were freed unhurt after special forces disguised as doctors boarded the aircraft at the airport.
    The hijacker, who claimed he had important information, held the crew and passengers for two hours after landing, demanding a meeting with law enforcement officials and journalists.
    The 30-year-old passenger also handed a note to a crew member demanding a meeting with Vladimir Putin, the country's prime minister, according to a statement by federal investigators.
    The rescue operation, involving Russia's special FSB forces and police agents, ensued when the hijacker agreed to allow medics aboard to treat passengers who had fallen ill.
    Doctors went aboard, accompanied by police dressed as medics, and the man was overpowered, said Tatyana Trunova, a spokeswoman for transport police.
    "It was the fastest aircraft-freeing operation in the history of civil aviation," said Yelena Galanova, an airport spokeswoman.
    Russian news agencies cited police officials as saying the man was not armed.
    Mineralniye Vody is in Russia's troubled North Caucasus region, which suffers daily violence attributed to separatist fighters.

    Hope all these acts by crack special ops teams against hijackers around the world gives some thing to ponder about to our security folks, so that they don't end up being fools whenever another IC 814 like situation crops up !!!

    Now you said it! I am sure Russians won't do anything similar to what our coward, enemy -appeasing government did with those IC-814 bombers who're now scott free and gone back to Pakistan. Knowing FSB, I think the would-be hijacker just invited a whole lot of pain upon himself.
