A Lufthansa cargo plane caught fire and split in half as it was landing Tuesday in the Saudi Arabian capital, and the German pilot and co-pilot were lightly injured, an airport official said.
"The plane was close to the airport when it caught fire," Mr. al-Hamoud said. "Its engines stopped working; then it crashed and split into two halves."
Riyadh airport official Fahd al-Hamoud said the pilot and co-pilot were rushed to a military hospital near the airport.
