Djiboutian aid plane crash-lands in Beledweyne

Djiboutian cargo plane transiting humanitarian supplies to Somalia’s Hiran region has crash-landed in Beledweyne on Tuesday.

According to Djibouti officials, the pilot and three occupants of the ill-fated aircraft escaped unhurt.

The De Havilland Canada DHC-8, commonly known as the Dash 8 took off from Djibouti-Ambouli International Airport to deliver humanitarian assistance to Somalis affected by recent floods in Hirshabelle state following an appeal by the regional leader.

Djiboutian contingent who part of African Union peacekeepers (AMISOM) are based in Hiran regional headquarters of Beledweyne where they have been assisting local residents in efforts to mitigate the effects of floods caused by ongoing Haga rains.

Apart from 90 tons of humanitarian supplies delivered to the region last month the Djiboutian government also donated USD 600,000 financial assistance through the federal government to implement projects to avert the recurring flood disaster.

Ten people including senior regional government officials were killed when a rescue boat they were traveling in was swept away by the water in Beledweyne last year.
