Pakistani plane has malfunction on landing in Oman

The Associated Press

Oman's official news agency says a plane arriving from Pakistan had a tire malfunction on landing in the country's capital.

The ONA report says one tire on the Pakistan International Airlines Boeing 737 suffered a "technical fault" late Monday after touching down at Muscat International Airport.

It says all 114 passengers and crew were safely taken off the plane.

Flights into the airport were temporarily disrupted, but were back to full operations Tuesday.

It was not immediately clear what had caused the tire malfunction.
