Failed Airplane Hijacking in Turkey

Here's the initial report I saw, but I'll update if I find out there's more to the story:

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 passenger said the bomb was in the baggage hold, a Transportation Ministry official said.

The plane landed in Istanbul and the guy is in custody and is said to be Ukrainian.
