Belgrade - The Serb pilot who landed a jetliner in Somalia with a large hole in its fuselage says he never doubted that it was caused by a bomb and describes the security at Mogadishu Airport as "zero."
After initially saying there was no sign of foul play, Somali officials said on Saturday that a suicide bomber was suspected to have set off the explosive inside the plane. They said the blast sucked a male passenger out of the plane on Tuesday and forced the aircraft to make an emergency landing in Somalia's capital.
The pilot, Vlatko Vodopivec, blamed the incident on the lack of security at Mogadishu Airport, describing the facility as "chaotic."
He said that Somali investigators initially tried to put the blame on his airline company.
