Severely burnt body tumbles from sky
A Daallo Airlines airplane making its way from Somalia to a spot in East Africa was forced to make an emergency landing after an explosion ripped through metal above the wing and left a gaping hole, injuring two, witnesses said.
Local media reported a “severely burnt body” was seen falling from the skies above Djibouti, the news blog Jalopnik reported. Other reports said two were injured, but it’s not known how severely they were hurt.
Various Twitter posts followed the event.
This one from Goodjoog News said: “Daallo Airline plane heading 2 Djibouti catches fire 5 mints afta taking off from the airport in Mogadishu. 2 injured.”
And this from a supposed eyewitness, who tweeted: “#Somalia: Plane makes emergency landing at #Mogadishu airport; incidnt being treated as ‘suspicious’ sources.”
