    Background: BURGAS, BULGARIA

    The hijacking of a Turkish airliner ended on Monday (25 May) when Bulgarian police lured two of the group who had taken the crew and passengers hostage out of the plane while passengers attacked their companions. The action which freed the DC-9 took place nearly 31 hours after the plane had been forced to land at the Black Sea port of Burgas.

    Five of the passengers were hurt, two seriously enough to warrant hospital treatment. But by Tuesday (26 May) morning all the others were back at Istanbul after the ordeal which had begun when air hostess Asuman Yilderim faced an armed man at the cockpit door.
