Daallo Flight D3159, travelling from Somalia to Djibouti, reportedly set ablaze just five minutes after taking off from Aden Adde International Airport in Mogadishu. It was forced to turn around and perform an emergency landing at the Raas Cabaad-based airport.
There was a massive hole in the fuselage on the jet’s right hand side, just behind its R2 door. Two passengers were said to have suffered minor injuries in the incident. CEO of Somalia’s Daallo Airlines said that the cause of the incident is “still unclear”.
