 (AP) - Malta's prime minister says the two Libyan men who hijacked a plane and diverted it to Malta had a hand grenade and a pistol on them and a second pistol was found on the plane during search by Maltese soldiers.
Joseph Muscat told a news conference Friday that the 111 passengers on the plane will be returned to Libya in the coming hours after they are questioned by police.
He says the hijackers eventually surrendered peacefully without making any conditions after the Maltese government insisted that all passengers had to be released.
He says the hijackers are now being interrogated.
