The charred remains of the tragic flier were discovered in a town north of Mogadishu after the blast forced the Daallo Airlines Airbus A321 to make an emergency landing in Mogadishu,according to CNN.
The explosion took place shortly after takeoff as the plane, en route to Djibouti was ascending to 30,000 feet.
When it landed back at Mogadishu International Airport, about 75 people were evacuated and there only two minor injuries among the remaining passengers.
As officials tried to account for all of the people on board, reports from a small town north of Mogadishu said a person may have been sucked from the jet in the apparent blast.
A police officer in the town of Balad said residents found the body of an elderly man whom they suspect fell from the aircraft.
