Officials say a Fly Jamaica Boeing 757-200 aircraft has overshot the runway at Guyana's main global airport, injuring several people.

In a statement, Jamaica Arlines said: "We can confirm that Fly Jamaica flight OJ256 bound for Toronto has returned to Georgetown with a technical problem and has suffered an accident on landing".

Minster of Public Infrastructure, David Patterson at an emergency press conference held at the airport, confirmed that 120 persons, including two infants, were onboard the flight destined for Toronto, Canada.
