He was a Turrkish Kurd who was denied asylum status in Norway. Apparently he started shouting "fly back to Oslo" when they went into their initial descent.

Quoting thegreatRDU (Reply 1):

Sorry, but no matter the feel-good aspect repeated here I've never seen evidence to support such. As I've said many times before, it's one thing to overpower a drunk (as in this case), but quite another when faced with an actual threat. Perfectly natural! Such may indded happen some time, but it hasn't up until now.....except from an archair behind a computer screen.
