Accra - An Ethiopian Airlines cargo plane skidded off the tarmac on landing in Ghana's capital, Accra on Saturday, the airports authority said.
The Ghana Airports Company said in a statement that the plane, a Boeing 737 en route from the Togolese capital, Lome, and operated by Asky Airlines, came off the runway just before lunch.
"The aircraft was carrying general cargo. The accident scene has been secured and cordoned off. The three crew on board have been treated and discharged," it added.
Operations at the airport were unaffected and flights were operating on schedule, the statement said.
