Two surrender in Cyprus after hijacking jetliner

Two Lebanese men who hijacked a Libyan airliner surrendered Thursday at Larnaca Airport. They handed over a pistol and a briefcase containing a bomb, which was defused by police. The plane's 21 passengers were released unharmed, an official said.

Christos Mavrellis, minister of communications and works, who negotiated with the hijackers, told reporters that no terms had been agreed to for release of the hostages other than fair treatment for the hijackers under arrest.
