Nairobi: The Kenyan capital`s main international airport was shut on Sunday following the crash-landing of a domestic flight, airport officials said.

The Kenyan Airports Authority said a Fokker 50 flying from Wajir in the northeast and operated by Skyward suffered landing gear failure and landed on its belly at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, blocking the sole runway. No casualties were reported.

All inbound flights were being diverted to the port city of Mombasa while work was underway to clear the runway and resume flights to and from east Africa`s main air transport hub, officials said.
