    Last week, Russia's An-12 military transport aircraft made an emergency landing in Koltsovo Airport in the city of Yekaterinburg, Russia over chassis malfunction.

    A Boeing 737 belonging to Smartavia airline has performed an emergency landing in Krasnoyarsk, Russia over reported explosive device onboard.

    According to a company's representative, local police managed to track down and arrest the alleged perpetrator, who turned out to be a late passenger.

    The aircraft was airborne for three hours.

    The landing in Krasnoyarsk comes amid an incident in the region as a dam on a water reservoir belonging to a gold-mining company collapsed near the settlement of Shchetinkino, killing at least 11 people.
