A Boeing 727 operated by Royal Air Maroc was hijacked after takeoff from Athens, Greece. The hijacker had boarded at the start of the flight in Damascus, Syria. He put a pistol to the head of a flight attendant and demanded to see the captain. When in the cockpit he pointed the pistol at the pilot and held a hand grenade in his other hand. He demanded the plane divert to Tunis, Tunisia. He also made various demands for
improved morality and strict Islamic faith observance in Morocco. Shortly after landing in Tunis the passengers deplaned. After about one hour of negotiations the hijacker surrendered to Tunisian authorities.
