Kenyan aircraft crashes at Somali border

Mareeg.com- By James Shimanyula, Monday, May 12, 2014 -NAIROBI – A Kenyan aircraft carrying an unspecified number of military personnel crashed Monday near Kenya’s northeastern border with Somalia, an army spokesman has said.

“We don’t have details of the crash. I just received information a while ago,” Bogita Ongeri, spokesman for the Kenya Defense Forces, told Anadolu Agency by phone.

No details are available yet regarding a death toll.

“What we know is that the plane had passengers and was flying from Al-Wak to Nairobi. We have sent a special rescue team,” the spokesman said.

Asked about the cause of the crash, Ongeri said: “We can only do so [speculate on the cause] after the rescue team and our investigators have reached the place of the crash and gathered the necessary information.”
