Footage has emerged of the British passenger who took a selfie with the EgyptAir hijacker.

In the video, filmed by a Dutch passenger who was also being held hostage at the time - Ben Innes can be seen walking up the plane aisle to ask for a photo with the hijacker.

The steward asks Mr Innes “You want to take a photo with him?”

Mr Innes replies “yeah, that OK?” before walking up and standing beside the hijacker, Seif Eldin Mustafa.

Mr Innes told The Sun on Tuesday night: “I’m not sure why I did it, I just threw caution to the wind while trying to stay cheerful in the face of adversity.

“I figured if his bomb was real I’d nothing lose anyway, so took a chance to get a closer look at it.
