    An Airbus A330 passenger airplane, which left the Saudi city of Medina en route to the capital of Bangladesh - Dhaka, has made an emergency landing in the city of Jeddah, located in the west of the kingdom, Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper reported.

    According to the airline, after take-off, the captain of the aircraft carrying 141 passengers and 10 crew members reported a "malfunction in the hydraulic mechanism of the front gear."
