Eleven people, including United Nations employees, sustained injuries after a UN aircraft made a hard landing at an airport in Mali’s eastern city of Gao, the UN Mission in Mali (Minusma) said.

The plane left the capital, Bamako, Monday morning and had four UN personnel and seven crew members.

It suffered extensive damage during the incident, the mission said in a statement.

An investigation will be carried out to determine the cause of the accident, it said.

Jacdec, which monitors aviation safety, tweeted photos of the plane:
