Nigeria Suspends Dana Air License After Crash

“(Abuja, Nigeria) A spokesman for Nigeria’s aviation ministry says the country has “indefinitely suspended” the license of the air carrier involved in Sunday’s crash in Lagos that killed all 153 people aboard and an unknown number on the ground.

Joe Obi told The Associated Press on Tuesday that the government suspended Dana Air’s license as a matter of safety as it investigates the crash.

Officials with Dana Air could not immediately be reached for comment.

The MD-83 plane went down in Lagos’ Iju-Ishaga neighborhood, about nine kilometers (five miles) from Lagos’ Murtala Muhammed International Airport. The crew radioed the tower that they had engine trouble shortly before the crash, but the exact cause remained unclear. The weather was clear at the time.” -Associated Press
