The co-pilot, an Ethiopian man born in 1983, took control of the plane when the pilot ventured outside the cockpit. The man wanted asylum in Switzerland. Jornot said Swiss federal authorities were investigating the hijacking and would press charges that could carry a prison sentence of up to 20 years. (AP Photo/Keystone, Salvatore Di Nolfi)
