Authorities say Turkish commandos stormed a hijacked ferry Saturday and killed the lone hijacker.
Istanbul Governor Huseyin Avni Mutlu told reporters Saturday that the crew and passengers were all safe, and the identity of the hijacker is still being determined. Earlier reports said up to five suspected Kurdish militants armed with explosives carried out the hijacking.
