    DUBAI, Sept 28 (Reuters) - A "limited number" of flights were diverted from landing at Qatar's airport in Doha on Monday morning after a technical issue with a freighter plane which declared an emergency and landed safely without incident, Qatar Airways said on Twitter.

    The plane was a B747F, it added.

    The B747F is a cargo plane that usually carries no passengers. (Reporting by Maher Chmaytelli; Editing by Kim Coghill and Toby Chopra)
