In May this year, Kenyan authorities wrote to the Somalia government demanding answers after a light aircraft was shot down in Bardale area, Baidoa killing all six on board.

The Embraer 120 plane with tail registration 5Y AXO and belonging to African Express was landing in Bardale town when it was hit with a Rocket-propelled grenade (RPG) by Ethiopian forces.

The forces guarding Bardelle airstrip in Baidoa claimed that they adjudged the plane’s unusual flight towards the facility as a potential suicide mission.
