Prosecutor Drops Hijacking Inquiry

From Times Wire Reports

A Swedish prosecutor dropped a hijacking probe of a man who boarded a plane with a loaded gun in his luggage.

Kerim Chatty, 29, was freed last month after spending four weeks in jail on suspicion of planning to hijack a London-bound airliner. At that time, chief prosecutor Thomas Haeggstroem said suspicion had waned.

Though Haeggstroem dropped the probe, he said Chatty could still face a weapons charge in the Aug. 29 incident.
