According to Fox News Channel, the man has been identified as an Italian male.
He supposedly jumped into the aisle in flight, yelling, "I am a terrorist. I support al Qaeda. I have a bomb, and I'm hijacking this airplane."
No word on whether or not the passengers proceeded to kick the snot out of him or not.
French police stormed the aircraft upon landing at Lyon, and took him into custody.
