LAGOS: A Qatar Airways flight from Doha to Lagos landed safely after declaring an emergency over a problem with its landing gear, said an emergency response official.

The Airbus A330 aircraft landed safely just after 1 p.m. local time (1200 GMT) with no injuries, said Femi Oke-Osanyintolu, the emergency management director for Lagos state.

Harold Demuren, director-general of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, told The Associated Press that the flight Saturday declared an emergency prior to its arrival to Lagos. Demuren said firefighting equipment and personnel stood by for its arrival at Lagos' Murtala Muhammed International Airport.

Officials with Qatar Airways could not be immediately reached for comment.
