At least six passengers were injured early on Friday when a Fly Jamaica aeroplane, which was headed for Toronto, Canada, made an emergency landing in Guyana, officials said.

The plane, which had 120 passengers and eight crew members on board, had been in the air for about 20 minutes when the pilot indicated it was experiencing problems with its hydraulic system, Guyana officials said at a news conference.

Six passengers suffered non-life threatening injuries when the plane landed about 45 minutes after it departed Cheddi Jagan International Airport at about 2 a.m. local time, they said.
