By staff

According to an African Union Mission in Somalia statement, an Ethiopian Air Force plane crash-landed at the Mogadishu International Airport in Somalia, killing four crew members and injuring two others, Aug. 9.

Witnesses at the airport say that the crash was followed by large explosions, suggesting the aircraft was carrying war material.

Via Twitter feed, the Somali resistance organization Al-Shabaab stated they were glad for the crash and said there are indications that the weapons were meant for militias associated with the pro-western puppet government that rules a portion of Somalia.

Ethiopian troops are playing major role in propping up the Mogadishu-based puppet regime that is funded by the U.S.
