A passenger from the hijacked EgyptAir flight who had the cheek to take a photograph with his captor is a 26-year-old British man from Leeds.
Benjamin Innes was one of the last captives to be released by Seif al-Din Mustafa during Tuesday's six-hour hijacking episode and took a picture with the man who claimed to be wearing a suicide vest.
A photograph shows Mr Innes grinning broadly as he stands next to Mustafa in the cabin of the hijacked Airbus 320 as it sat on the runway of an airport in Cyprus.
Friends and family of Mr Innes said the behaviour was typical of an irreverent young man who loves a joke.
Mr Innes told The Sun: "I'm not sure why I did it, I just threw caution to the wind while trying to stay cheerful in the face of adversity."
"I got one of the cabin crew to translate for me and asked him if I could do a selfie with him."
"He just shrugged OK so I stood by him and smiled for the camera while a stewardess did the snap. It has to be the best selfie ever."
Mustafa, a 59-year-old Egyptian man, sparked alerts across the planet when he told the cabin crew of EgyptAir flight 181 that he had a bomb and forced the aircraft to make an emergency landing at Cyprus's Larnaca airport.
But over the course of six strange hours, he issued a demand to see his Cypriot former wife and took pictures with Mr Innes before finally surrendering himself to police.
As one Egyptian official summed it up:"He's not a terrorist, he's an idiot."
