Swedish Airliner Fired on Over Iraq

Published fredag 10 augusti 2007 kl 12.48

A Swedish passenger jet has been fired at while flying over northeastern Iraq.

The Nordic Airways plane was carrying some 130 passengers, and had just taken off from Sulaymaniyah, in Iraqi Kurdistan, en route to Stockholm. After the pilot saw bright light flashes, the crew realized that someone had opened fire but no damage has been reported, and no passengers were injured.

The plane landed at Stockholm’s Arlanda airport on Thursday, without the passengers being aware of what had occurred.

The airline makes one journey a week on this route, but has suspended all flights until further notice.
