Aviation Security officials who escorted the aircraft upon landing said all necessary security landing procedures were observed as the aircraft was landing.

They said there was no invader around the aircraft, suspected the opening must have been as a result of force landing.

Further investigation revealed  that all passengers on the flight got their luggage intact, except for a certain Tazi Larbi, whose luggage with tag number 829116 did not come on the flight because it was left in Morocco

The aircraft pushed back at about 0530 hours and was airborne to Morrocco at 0540 hours.
