Nigerian social media users falsely claim that two videos show an alleged Indonesian plane crash

Nigerian social media users have shared two videos with claims that they show an Indonesian airline crash. One of the clips features a plane making a bumpy landing on a runway, while the other displays passengers evacuating an already crash-landed plane. But the claims are false: neither clips show an actual Indonesian airline accident. AFP Fact Check found that one is a computer-generated scene and the other genuine footage from a recent crash in Iran.
