33 dead in Mozambican plane crash

A Mozambique Airlines plane carrying 33 people has crashed in Namibia, killing all on board.

Bollen Sankwasa, a deputy police commissioner, said the plane crashed in a national park near the border with Angola and there were no survivors.

Flight TM470 from Maputo, the Mozambican capital, did not land as scheduled in Luanda, the Angolan capital, on Friday afternoon, and the airline initially said the plane may have landed in Rundu, in northern Namibia.

The airline says the plane was carrying 27 passengers, including 10 Mozambicans, nine Angolans, five Portuguese, and one citizen each from France, Brazil and China. It says six crew members were on board.
