BRAZZAVILLE - A cargo plane crashed into houses near Brazzaville airport while attempting to land during a thunderstorm on Friday evening, killing at least 32 people, a Congolese Red Cross official said on Saturday.

"We have already pulled 32 bodies from the crash site, but the search is ongoing, there could be more victims," the official said, asking not to be named.

The Soviet-made Ilyushin-76 cargo plane was coming from the Pointe Noire, the commercial capital of the Central African state.
