Abdullahi reported that the plane had just taken off for the city of Beledweyne, but had had to return to the airport after mechanical problems.

Somalia has seen at least two other such plane crashes so far this year. In July, a cargo plane carrying humanitarian aid crashed in Beledweyne. In May, six people died when an African Express plane carrying medical supplies crashed near Bardale.
