MOGADISHU - An Ethiopian Air Force cargo plane crash-landed at Mogadishu's seaside airport on Friday, killing four people on board, the African Union said.
Two crew members were rescued by emergency personnel and are being treated in the African Union military hospital near the base, said Mahamat Saleh Annadif, an African Union representative to Somalia. He said the runway wasn't damaged and airport operations are expected to resume soon.
The 8 a.m. crash sent dark plumes of smoke over Mogadishu. An airport official who insisted on anonymity said the plane was full of weapons. The official insisted on anonymity because he is not an authorized spokesman.
