A Lufthansa cargo plane crashed at King Khaled International Airport in the Saudi capital on Tuesday but there were no casualties, the kingdom’s civil aviation authority said.
“The firefighters are containing the fire,” said a spokesman for the General Authority of Civil Aviation, adding there were no casualties. Two pilots are being treated in hospital, the German carrier said in a statement.
Al Arabiya television earlier reported the cargo plane had split in half.
