Somali Authorities reported the aircraft had attempted several approaches to the airport but had gone around each time, because the flight crew lost visual reference to the runway. The flight departed late from Cairo, and as a consequence reached Moghadishu after sunset. The airfield does not have runway lights, and is closed from sunset until sunrise. After several attempts, the flight had run out of fuel, making the emergency landing necessary.
