Daallo Airlines confirms one passenger missing
A PASSENGER on the flight forced to land at Somalia’s Mogadishu airport after a large hole appeared in the fuselage has been confirmed missing by the airline.
Daallo Airlines had previously said that all the passengers had been accounted for.
It is thought that the man fell out of the hole, which appeared shortly after take-off from Mogadishu on Tuesday.
There have been fears that the damage to the flight was caused by a bomb.
But the exact cause is still not clear and Somalia is currently investigating what led the hole to appear on the Djibouti-bound aeroplane.
Daallo Airlines’ head, Mohamed Ibrahim Yasin Olad, told the BBC Somali service that he hoped the investigation would be over soon so that his flights could resume but with tighter security at Mogadishu’s airport.
He said that he has given the details to security officials investigating the incident.
