A Doha-bound private plane with 139 passengers on board experienced a mechanical issue while it was getting ready to take off early on Friday, as per airport officials. It then turned around and returned. The hitch was discovered as the plane was prepared to take off, according to the official, and the pilots asked for permission to turn around. The 139 people disembarked and were given accommodations in hotels in the city. They were probably going to continue on to their destination once the technical problem was resolved.
More details awaited on the incident.
