A Kenya Airways flight with more than 100 people aboard has crashed in southern Cameroon, state radio reported Saturday. The radio said the flight, which lost contact with airport controllers soon after taking off around midnight, crashed near the southern town of Niete. The report did not provide further details. Kenya Airways said earlier Saturday it had lost contact with the plane shortly after takeoff. "The last message was received in Douala after takeoff and thereafter the tower was unable to contact the plane," Kenya Airways CEO Titus Naikuni said in the Kenyan capital. The Boeing 737-800 was carrying 106 passengers, eight crew members and a flight engineer, he said. The plane can carry 189 passengers.
