19 killed in plane crash in Congo

Nineteen bodies were recovered on Sunday after a small plane crashed on takeoff into a densely populated area of the city of Goma in the Democratic Republic of Congo, rescue workers said.
“We are up to 19 bodies now,” Goma rescue service coordinator Joseph Makundi told media.
The dead are believed to include all those on board the plane as well as people on the ground.
Images from the scene showed plumes of black smoke and flames apparently from the burning plane as locals looked on.
Rescue workers were also seen combing through the plane´s burned-out fuselage.
