Suspected Bomb Hand-Off Caught on Camera Before Ill-Fated Flight

Somalian authorities release video footage from inside Mogadishu’s airport.

— -- Authorities in Somalia have released video footage from inside Mogadishu’s airport that they say shows a laptop packed with explosives being handed to a passenger before the mid-air explosion that forced a Daallo Airlines flight to make an emergency landing last week.

In the video, reportedly taken by surveillance cameras after security checks, two men can be seen walking together when one of the men hands a laptop case to a third man -- the suspected plane bomber, according to The Associated Press.

The two men and several others have been arrested, a senior Somali spokesman told the Associated Press.

The suspected bomber was sucked out of the airplane after the mid-air explosion left a relatively small hole in the plane, authorities said.
