Bangladesh tightens airport security after attempted hijack

Bangladesh has tightened airport security in the capital Dhaka, where a would-be hijacker's plane began its journey.

A passenger on a flight to Dubai took a crew member hostage and threatened to storm the cockpit.

It transpired that the 25-year-old was carrying a toy gun. He was shot dead by police after an emergency landing in the southern city of Chittagong.
