ANKARA, Turkey (AP) - Turkey's state-run television says the country's authorities have detained a Ukrainian passenger who tried to hijack an Istanbul-bound plane to Sochi, Russia, where the Olympics are kicking off.

TRT television says the authorities convinced the passenger to give himself up and that the man was now in police custody.

The station did not cite a source for the report and there was no confirmation from the Transport Ministry.

Pegasus Airlines also would not confirm the report.
