An El Al flight from Tel Aviv to Munich made an emergency landing in Bulgaria after a passenger attacked the flight crew and threatened other passengers.

The plane landed Thursday in Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria, after the German passenger struck a flight attendant in the back. He also threatened other passengers using violent language, according to reports.

The plane landed in Sofia after a flight attendant pressed the panic button.

The violent passenger was taken off the plane and sent to a local police station, where EL AL reportedly filed a report against him.
