Plane Crash Halt Flights In Kenya
Flights into Nairobi’s main airport in Kenya have been suspended following the crash-landing of a passenger plane on the runway.
The plane, a Fokker 50 turboprop was carrying six people when it crash-landed at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport on its belly following a landing gear failure.
So far, no deaths or injuries have been reported, according to the BBC. The aircraft was travelling from Wajir when it made the emergency landing at one of the busiest airports in east and central Africa.
This is not the first time the airport which serves up to 19000 daily passengers has been forced to close down. In August 2013, a huge fire forced its closure for several days.
