Dubai – The United Arab Emirates aviation authority was investigating al-Qaeda’s claim it was behind a September crash of a UPS plane in Dubai, but had found no link, an official said today.
“So far, we have no evidence that links the UPS plane crash with a terror attack. There is no evidence of explosives on board,” said Saif al-Suwaidi, director-general of the United Arab Emirates’ General Civil Aviation Authority.
“That does not mean we will not take this claim seriously. We are investigating the claim,” he added.
