Cyprus extradites lovejacker to Egypt for trial

Cyprus extradites lovejacker (remember him?) to Egypt for trial: Seif Eddin Mustafa, the man who hijacked a domestic EgyptAir plane and diverted it to Cyprus, has been extradited to Egypt to be tried for the 2016 incident, according to Reuters. The extradition came after “Cairo provided assurances that he would faced legal proceedings that conform to international standards.” Mustafa has been in Cyprus since the hijacking, which he claimed he committed to seek asylum in Italy. The European Court of Human Rights had blocked Cypriot authorities from extraditing Mustafa last year.
