Six die as plane carrying Coronavirus medical supplies crashes

Six people, including two pilots, were killed when a plane carrying medical supplies crashed in South-western Somalia on Monday.

“The cause of the accident is not yet known,” government spokesman Ismael Mukhtar Omar told the Germany’s news agency dpa.

The plane, which was carrying medical supplies needed in the fight against the Coronavirus, took off from Baidoa airport in the Bay region.

It crashed shortly after, near the town of Bardaale where it was meant to land, Omar said.

Gilbert Kibe, director general of the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority, confirmed to dpa that the plane belonged to Kenya’s African Express Airways.

But he said there was no official reports about the casualties or cause of the accident.
