Afriqiyah Airways Flight 8U209 took off from Sabha in southwestern Libya and then was diverted to Malta, 350 kilometres off the Libyan coast.
Malta’s prime minister says the weapons the hijackers had were replicas.
A Libyan airline official says the pair wanted to go to Rome but ended up in Malta because there wasn’t enough fuel.
