BRAZZAVILLE - An Antonov cargo plane crashed in a suburb of the Congo Republic city of Pointe-Noire on Monday, witnesses said, with French RFI radio reporting at least 14 killed.
"Ambulances are shuttling bodies to the mortuary and the wounded to the hospital," one witness told Reuters. "The damage is significant, but for now we do not yet know the precise number of casualties."
France's RFI radio said at least 14 had been killed but did not give a more precise toll.
The witness said the plane had been preparing to land at the airport in the coastal city but then veered out seawards before crashing on several buildings in the Mvou Mvou suburb.
