Ben Innes the British man who took a selfie with EgyptAir hijacker

Ben Innes posted an image of himself on social media posing with Seif Eldin Mustafa who pretended to hijack a plane  in a “suicide belt” later found to be fake.

Innes captioned the image with the message “You know your boy doesn’t f*** about. Turn on the news lad!!!”

He told the Sun: “I just threw caution to the wind while trying to stay cheerful in the face of adversity. I figured if his bomb was real I’d nothing to lose anyway, so took a chance to get a closer look at it.

“I got one of the cabin crew to translate for me and asked him if I could do a selfie with him. He just shrugged OK, so I stood by him and smiled for the camera while a stewardess did the snap. It has to be the best selfie ever.”
