Twitter posts featuring photos of a plane on fire claimed that an aircraft crashed at Nairobi’s international airport. However, the Kenya Airports Authority (KAA) clarified there was an emergency drill at the airport, not an accident. AFP Fact Check also found that one of the photos shared online shows a 2019 Russian plane crash.
