A Singapore Airlines (SIA) superjumbo jet on a flight to India hit severe turbulence on Saturday night, leaving 22 people injured.

The Airbus A380 was flying from Singapore to Mumbai and had begun its descent when it was hit by the sudden turbulence.

The flight, SQ424, was carrying 408 passengers and 25 crew members.

The eight passengers and 14 crew members who were injured received medical treatment when the plane landed. It was not clear how serious the injuries were.

All these passengers and 10 of the crew were reportedly hospitalised. All but for two of the passengers were believed to have been discharged later.

An SIA spokesman said: "Our immediate concern is for the well-being of our passengers and crew. Singapore Airlines will provide full assistance to the authorities in their investigations."

Photos purportedly showing blood-stains in the plane and passengers wearing bandages have appeared online.

Here are three photos that were put up by Boh Tong, a blogger who says he has been an SIA cabin crew of 35 years.
