Government officials say there are only six known survivors from the 85 passengers and crew members onboard a DC-9 plane that crashed in the town of Goma. Julien Mpaluku, the governor of the province, says there were 79 passengers onboard and six crew members. He said Tuesday the crash site is engulfed in flames, making it difficult to determine if the bodies being pulled from the wreckage are those of passengers or residents of the congested residential neighborhood where the plane crashed.
