Cypriot president Nikos Anastasiades has reportedly ruled out terrorism as being behind the incident and instead claims the hijacker wants to ‘reunite with his former Cypriot wife’.
The president said: “It’s all to do with a woman,” the Guardian reports. “We are doing everything to release the hostages.”
