    Official: Plane lands in Turkey after bomb threat, passenger wants to land in Sochi

    CNN) -- A Pegasus Airlines plane landed at an Istanbul airport Friday after a passenger "said that there was a bomb on board" and wanted the plane to land in Sochi, Russia, the site of the Winter Olympics, said officials with Turkey's Transportation Ministry."While the plane was in the air, one of the passengers said that there was a bomb on board and asked the plane to not land in Sabiha Gokcen (in Turkey) but rather to land in Sochi," Transportation Ministry official Habip Soluk said Friday on CNNTurk.
    The Olympic Games began Thursday in Sochi amid intense security against potential terror attacks. Official opening ceremonies were being held Friday.
    The 110 passengers are still on board the plane, a public diplomacy officer said Friday night in Turkey.
    The alleged hijacker is of Ukrainian nationality, Soluk said.

    Another terrorist threat during the Olympics. This time seems like it was actually tried to carry out. Either that or it was just some nut really wanting to go to the Olympics.

    They grounded the plane. The terrorist and the 110 passengers are still on the plane in the middle of the tarmac.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.
