Qatar Airways plane makes emergency landing in Istanbul

A Qatar Airways aircraft made an emergency landing at Istanbul’s Ataturk airport on Thursday after its landing gear failed to retract on take-off, an airport official said.

The official could not confirm a report by broadcaster CNN Turk that one of the plane’s engines caught fire.

The aircraft, an Airbus 330 bound for Doha, landed safely and passengers disembarked as normal, Qatar Airways said.
