Kenyan aircraft conveying COVID-19 medical supplies to Somalia shut down
On Monday, the Ethiopian forces in Somalia confirmed that it shot down Kenyan cargo plane with six persons on board.
The plane was said to be carrying humanitarian and medical supplies to help the country fight the spread of coronavirus in Somalia.
According to Aljazeera reports, the soldiers mistakenly believed the plane was on a “potential suicide mission” because they had not been informed about the “unusual flight” and the aircraft was flying low.
“Because of lack of communication and awareness, the aircraft was shot down,” the military said. “The incident … will require mutual collaborative investigation team from Somalia, Ethiopia and Kenya to further understand the truth.”
