Somalia Cries Foul as Kenya Lands Plane at Kismayu Airport
The Somali Civil Aviation Authority has said that Kenya violated its airspace, after a plane left Nairobi and flew directly to Sayid Mohammed Hassan International Airport, also known as Kismayu Airport, instead of first landing in the capital Mogadishu. This grievance comes amid already strained relations between Nairobi and Mogadishu over the maritime border dispute, which is being heard at the UN's International Court of Justice.
