An Airbus A300 cargo aircraft carried out a forced landing near Afgooye, Somalia. The aircraft operated on a flight from Oostende, Belgium and Cairo, Egypt to Mogadishu International Airport, Somalia, carrying a cargo on behalf of the African Union Mission In Somalia (AMISOM).
After several failed attempts to land the crew apparently force landed in the outskirts of Mogadishu.
Approaches to the airport were hampered by the night time conditions and the lack of aids that would allow the aircraft to land in these conditions. Sunset at Mogadishu was at 17:47 hours local time.
