    I know this airport , the main runway IS 04R and in difficult conditions 04L is not easily seen , in fact it looks like a taxiway (which it is), it is a similar setup to Gatwick, where more than one have also made the same mistake!

    the fault really lies with ATC not making it fully clear that the landing runway is in fact the taxiway and to ignore the main runway, as pilots coming down an ILS will naturally land on what is in front of them. Luckily the runway was not occupied by works vehicles etc as has happened in the past
