Lagos (AFP) - An Air France aircraft, with 178 people aboard, made an emergency landing at Lagos's international airport Sunday after a faulty indicator showed a nose tyre pressure fault, an official statement said.

"The aircraft, which had a total of 178 souls on board with 168 passengers and 10 crew, landed safely," the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) said in the statement.
