US: Bomb likely cause of Somalia plane blast

  • 04/02/2016

Investigators believe a bomb likely caused the explosion aboard a plane that was forced to return to the Somali capital of Mogadishu for an emergency landing, two US government sources have said.

The sources on Wednesday (local time) also told Reuters on condition of anonymity that hard forensic evidence was lacking and no group was known to have claimed responsibility for the blast.

One person died on Tuesday when the Daallo Airlines Airbus A321 carrying 74 passengers was forced to return after a blast tore a hole in the fuselage.
