A Boeing 777 flight on Friday made an emergency landing in Moscow owing to engine problems, the operating Rossiya Airlines has said.

The aircraft, which was en route from Hong Kong to Madrid, reported an “incorrect operation of the engine control sensor” mid-flight, and the crew members requested the landing at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport.

The emergency landing caused no injuries, said Rossiya Airlines, a unit of Russia’s flag and largest carrier Aeroflot, adding that the flight will continue its trip to Madrid hours later.

The right engine of the plane had caught fire and scattered debris across nearby neighbourhoods.
