Several lost their lives

A plane from the US Air Force was filmed as it was about to take off from the airport. Hundreds ran after the plane and some clung to the fuselage.

Pictures from when the plane had taken off show that several people fell from the plane into the air, high above the ground.

Local media have reported that at least two people have been confirmed dead, and the US Air Force has confirmed that remains were found in the wheelhouse of the plane when it made an emergency landing in Qatar.
