LONDON (WTNH)– Video has now surfaced of the viral #HijackerSelfie.
The footage shows the exact moment Ben Innes takes a photo with hijacker, Seif Eldin Mustafa.
EgyptAir Flight 181 was hijacked on Tuesday when flying to Cairo from Alexandria.
The plane was carrying 72 people when it was routed to Larnaca International Airport in Cyprus due to the hijacking.
Although the photo wasn’t an actual “selfie”, the hashtag #HijackerSelfie started to get some buzz after the photo of Innes and Mustafa surfaced.
What worries me most about the #hijackerselfie was that it was not a selfie, but a photo WITH a hijacker. Have we lost our sense of selfie?

‘#hijackerselfie‘ is a guy I went to school with, who unsurprisingly was the class clown. Some things never change..P.s it’s not a selfie 👍🏽
