One Person Survives Crash of Passenger Plane in Libyan Capital, 103 Others Killed

A Libyan passenger plane has crashed in the Libyan capital, Tripoli killing 103 people and leaving one survivor.

Libyan security officials say the Afrique Airways plane crashed Wednesday morning as it was attempting to land at the Tripoli airport after a flight from Johannesburg, South Africa, Voice of America informs.

The crash occurred at 6:10 a.m., the airline said. The flight originated in Johannesburg and was due to stop in Tripoli before continuing on to London Gatwick. The airline’s schedule indicated the plane was an Airbus A330-200 configured for a capacity of 253 passengers.

Afriqiyah Airways, with its hub in Tripoli, was founded in 2001. It has 13 aircraft in its fleet and flies to 25 countries, principally in Africa, Europe and the Middle East, New York Times reports.

An avid reader of mine, he 'had something urgent to tell me', after finding out that our paths were going to be crossing in this destroyed and hopelessly polluted Indonesian capital.
