BEIRUT, Nov 10 — A Middle East Airlines (MEA) passenger plane bound from Jordan to Beirut was hit by a stray bullet while landing in Beirut today, with no injuries reported, MEA Chairman Mohamad El-Hout told Reuters.

Hout said that seven to eight stationary planes are hit by stray bullets shot from areas neighbouring Beirut airport each year, but Wednesday’s incident was the first time it had happened while a plane was moving. — Reuters
