A Daallo Airline Airbus A321 flight D3159 made an emergency landing at Mogadishu today after an explosion soon after takeoff from Mogadishu, Somalia.

A loud bang was heard followed by flames, injuring 2 passengers.
The body of a person fallen from a plane around Balcad town, Somalia.

If it had happened in higher altitude, it would have been an explosive decompression! It could have been a premature detonation of a bomb carried by a passenger.

A passenger filmed the interior of the aircraft still airborne just after the explosion. All passengers moved to the rear of the A321.
