This might just be the craziest selfie anyone's ever taken, and that's not an exaggeration.

Seif Eldin Mustafa hijacked an EgyptAir flight from Alexandria to Cairo yesterday morning because he wanted to see his ex-wife in Cyprus. He had a bomb strapped around his waist.

26-year-old Ben Innes of Leeds, England was a passenger on the flight. When the flight landed in Cyprus and swarms of cops surrounded it, Ben asked Seif if they could take a picture together.

Ben says, "I thought, why not? I figured if his bomb was real, I had nothing to lose anyway, so I took a chance to get a closer look at it."

Seif was down for a photo, so Ben posed next to him with a grin on his face while a flight attendant took the picture. You get a perfect look at the bomb in the photo, which turned out to be fake, by the way.


Seif surrendered after a few hours and he was arrested. An Egyptian official said, "He's not a terrorist, he's an idiot."
