Plane skids off runaway in northern Turkey, no injuries


A passenger jet slid off the runway and became stuck in mud after landing at an global airport in Turkey's Black Sea province of Trabzon late Saturday. The plane, belonging to private low-priced carrier Pegasus, had arrived from the capital Ankara.

Photographs from the scene showed the plane, which departed from the Turkish capital of Ankara on Saturday evening, stuck in the frozen mud.

The cause of the incident was not known but an investigation is under way, the Trabzon governor's office said.

When it came to talk of extending protections for Haitians, Mr Durbin said the president replied: "We don't need more Haitians". The New York Times reported the same comment, citing unnamed people with direct knowledge of the meeting.

"We stayed inside the plane for at least 20 minutes waiting for someone to help us", said one of the passengers. "There was panic; people shouting, screaming", Fatma Gordu, who was on board of the flight, told state-run news agency Anadolu, quoted in AFP.

Authorities said they did not know what caused the incident involving the Pegasus Airlines Boeing 737-800, which was traveling from Ankara to Trabzon, the AP reported.

The airport, situated in the Turkish province of the same name, was closed for several hours afterwards but has since reopened.
