A plane carrying food aid from Djibouti crashed at an airport in Beledweyne, central Somalia, on Tuesday.
The crew is safe and no-one on the ground was injured, according to a statement by the US embassy in Somalia. It said the flight was part of efforts to “provide vitally important food aid” to Somalia.
“The accident occurred on the runway during roll-out after landing,” it said.
Aviation Safety Network, which monitors aircraft accidents, posted a photo showing parts of the Kenyan plane engulfed in flames.
