Tripoli - Afriqiyah plane goes down

Recommended Posts

According to early reports, a Afriqiyah A330 crashed this morning. Al-Jazeera is saying the plane was coming from South Africa, it happened in clear weather, just short of runway 09, killing all 105 on board.My heart goes to the victims, not a good way to star work today. :(edit:http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/8676758.stm
