It has emerged that the two pistols and hand grenade used in the plane hijack were fake, the prime minister said.
The hijackers have been arrested after they forced a passenger jet to land in Malta.
The hijackers initially held more than a hundred passengers hostage but they and the crew were eventually released unharmed.
Initial forensic exams now showing weapons used in Afriqiyah hijack are replicas.
This is the moment the plane hijackers surrendered to security forces in Malta.
The two men, believed to be Libyan, have been taken into custody after an internal Libyan flight diverted and landed in Malta.
The plane is still being searched and passengers questioned.
