Narrative:
An aircraft chartered by the African Union Mission in Somalia (Amisom) reportedly crashed in a rural area in Afgoye District, Somalia.
Details about the occurrence are sketchy. The East African news website quotes sources stating the aircraft involved was a Kenyan-registered Dornier 328. However, there is no Do-328 known to be on the Kenyan register. There are smaller Dornier 228 aircraft on the Kenyan register.
The number of occupants is also unconfirmed. Sources vary, reporting that 9, 11, or 12 persons were aboard the plane. The fate of the occupants also remains unreported. The deputy commissioner of the Afgoye District told VOA that the plane is in al-Shabaab hands. Al-Shabaab is a militant group, participating in the Somali Civil War.
