29 injured as plane makes emergency landing in Saudi Arabia

Riyadh, Jan 6 : At least 29 passengers sustained injuries Sunday morning during their plane's emergency landing due to a technical fault in the western Saudi city of Medina, Xinhua quoted Saudi Press Agency as saying.


With 315 passengers onboard, Saudi Arabian Airline's Boeing 767 from Iran's Mashhad, failed to open its right rear wheels when landing at Medina's Prince Mohammed bin Abdulaziz International Airport, said Khalid bin Abdullah Al Khibiri, a spokesperson of the Saudi Civil Aviation.

He attributed the injuries to the passengers' rush during evacuation, adding that among the injured, 11 were sent to hospital and the other 18 with minor injuries were treated at the airport's clinic.
