Crow ‘forces plane to land’ in Burundi

The plane hit the crow during take-off, causing a ‘technical problem’

A crow has forced a plane in Burundi, packed with hundreds of soldiers, to return to the international airport in the capital, Bujumbura.

The plane hit the crow during take-off, causing a “technical problem” which forced it to abort its flight to Somalia’s capital, Mogadishu, sources at the airport and defence ministry told me.

The planed stayed in the air for nearly an hour, before eventually landing.
