KUALA LUMPUR: A Malaysia Airlines Berhad (MAB) passenger aircraft reportedly encountered severe turbulence today, which supposedly left several passengers and crew members injured.

Flight MH1, an Airbus A380 aircraft en route to Kuala Lumpur from London, reportedly experienced clear-air turbulence over the Bay of Bengal.

Reports at the moment are sketchy, with some claiming that 34 people in total were injured. Other reports suggest that the injured comprise four passengers and six crew members.

Images being shared on social media show a Malaysia Airlines aircraft galley in disarray with heavy food carts strewn across the floor, presumably as a result of the heavy turbulence.

Other images also show damage to some passenger overhead units, which appear to be cracked.

The passenger cabin is also seen to be in chaos, with debris strewn across the aisle.

Efforts to contact MAB for confirmation of the incident are ongoing.
