US aircraft crashes in Qatar

A US military aircraft has crash landed at the al-Udeid military base in Qatar.

The B1 bomber reportedly suffered technical difficulties and exploded
as it attempted to land at the base about 35km from the capital Doha
late on Friday.

There was no immediate information about casualties from the incident.

The B1 Lancer is a supersonic, long-range bomber which carries a crew of four people.

Last month, a B-1 bomber slid off the runway at Anderson Air Force base
on Guam, crashing into a group of emergency vehicles. The military
reported that there were no injuries and no fatalities as a result of
the accident.
