Détails:
A Sabena flight en route from Brussels, Belgium, to Nairobi, Kenya, came under fire as it was landing at Bujumbura International Airport. The Airbus A300-200 aircraft was hit by 13 machinegun bullets when it was at an altitude of approximately 100 meters. The plane landed safely several minutes after being struck. Of the 158 passengers and 12 crew members aboard the aircraft, only two people were slightly injured. According to the government, the attack was perpetrated by rebels seeking publicity. Various press sources support this theory, saying ethnic Hutu rebels fighting the Tutsi-led government of President Pierre Buyoya operate in the vicinity of the airport. Airport employees were quoted by the press as saying that Hutu rebels had come close to the airport in the days preceding the incident.
