BERLIN (CNN) -- An Austrian Airlines plane on a flight from
Berlin to Vienna was diverted back to Berlin's Tegel airport
Tuesday, where police overpowered a knife-wielding hijacker.
Officials said the man was a Bosnian who demanded
German residency and a work permit.
The Austrian Airlines flight carried 28 passengers and a
crew of five.
