Sudanese airplane hijacked

Craft carrying 103 passengers is said to be headed for Chad's capital N'Djamena.



    Another source at Khartoum airport told Reuters the aircraft was destined for el-Fasher, the main town in Sudan's western Darfur region.
     
    It was not clear how the hijacker got on board the craft with a weapon, but Sudanese security is often lax, especially on internal flights.
