The hijacking of an EgyptAir plane on Tuesday is not a terrorist act, Cypriot President Nikos Anastasiades says on state television.
Police sources say that the hijacker is motivated by personal reasons, state broadcaster RIK reports.
He is said to have demanded police hand over a letter written in Arabic to his ex-wife in Larnaca, according to the report.
