A Saudi Airlines plane with 260 passengers on board swerved on the runway after landing in the western Saudi town of Madina on Wednesday, a newspaper reported on Thursday.

“It was a dangerous landing that caused panic among the passengers…but there were no casualties,” the paper said without identify the type of the aircraft.
