Slovak hijacker surrenders to police

At Vienna's main bus station, Slovak citizen Michal C. barricaded himself inside a bus, claiming to have a bomb, daily SME reported.

After one and a half hours of negotiations he surrendered to the police, who searched the bus but found no bomb.

The man, who did not take any hostages and had no demands, was psychologically unstable. He told the police that he feels unsafe in Slovakia.

Under the Austrian Criminal Code, the hoax-bomber may be sentenced to a prison term of up to three years, as he did not actually have a bomb.
