An Ethiopian Airlines co-pilot locked his colleague out of the cockpit, hijacked a Rome-bound plane, and landed Monday in Geneva, all in an attempt to seek asylum in Switzerland, officials said. The Boeing 767-300 plane, with 202 passengers and crew, had taken off from the Ethiopian capital of Addis Ababa and landed in the Swiss city at about 6 a.m. Geneva time. Officials said no one on the flight was injured, and the hijacker was taken into custody after surrendering to police.
