PRETORIA, August 9 (Itar-Tass) – Military cargo plane, operated by six crew members, which arrived to Somali from Ethiopia with a shipment of weapons and ammunition, exploded upon landing at the Mogadishu international airport.
A representative of the airport’s security service told journalists that the “aircraft is on fire, ammunition on board is exploding. Firefighters are unable to extinguish the blaze.”
Reports indicate that the airplane caught on fire after being unable to stay on the airport’s landing strip. Sources indicated that the accident has claimed four lives
