A suicide bomber set off the explosion that tore a hole in an airliner flying out of Somalia last week, according to local authorities investigating the case.
The blast blew a 3-foot hole in the fuselage of the Daallo Airlines passenger plane minutes after it took off from Somalia’s Mogadishu airport with more than 70 passengers on Feb. 2.
Though the investigation continues, Somalian Transport Minister Ali Jama Jangali confirmed a bomb caused the explosion.
