An Embraer EMB-120 Brasilia suffered an accident during landing on runway 05 at Mogadishu Aden Adde International Airport (MGQ), Somalia. Two occupants were reportedly injured.

The Metar weather report shows the aircraft was likely landing on runway 05 with a tailwind component of 15-16 knots.
A video of the accident sequence shows the aircraft drifting to the left of the runway. After veering off the side, it violently swung 180 degrees while skidding to the side until it collided with the concrete perimeter fence.

Preliminary investigation results show that windshear may have been a factor in the accident.
