A Sudanese airliner hijacked shortly after take-off from the South Darfur capital Nyala has landed in Libya.

The plane was on its way to Khartoum, but has landed in the remote town of Kufra near the Libya-Sudan border.

The hijackers have asked for fuel to fly the plane, belonging to Sudanese airline Sun Air and with 95 people on board, to France.

Three members of a former Darfur rebel group are on the plane but they have denied taking part in the hijack.

A Sudanese security official said a man with a knife had hijacked the plane, the Associated Press news agency reported.

What do you think will happen next?

I'm thinking the plane won't take off and it will be resolved in Libya, then again, who knows what the Libyan government will do, if anything to stop them.
