12 injured in Qatar Airways flight

Six passengers and six cabin crew members have been injured after a Qatar Airways flight. The injuries, from an inbound to Dublin Airport from Doha, came as a result of turbulence over Turkey.

According to a statement from the Dublin Airport Authority (DAA), emergency services attended to the twelve individuals upon the flight's landing just before 1pm on Sunday. The turbulence-incurred injuries occurred while the plane was in Turkish airspace.

A spokesperson for the DAA confirmed: "Qatar Airways flight QR107 from Doha landed safely as scheduled at Dublin Airport shortly before 13.00."
