Turkey's prime minister is in Mogadishu to visit aid camps and open a Turkish Red Crescent-run camp and field hospital.
The visit got off to a rough start Friday when the wing of a plane carrying a delegation accompanying Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan scraped the tarmac while landing at Mogadishu airport. The Anatolia news agency said none of the parliamentarians, businessmen or journalists on board was hurt, but the plane was damaged and unfit to fly.
Erdogan and his family flew in the official state jet and were not affected.
Turkey this week hosted a donors conference for Somalia's famine for the 57-nation Organization of Islamic Cooperation. The countries pledged $350 million.
