Mozambique Plane Crash Kills All 33 Onboard

Police say the crash of a Mozambique Airlines plane in a remote border area of Namibia has killed all 33 people onboard.

The flight from Mozambique's capital, Maputo, with 27 passengers and six crew members was due to land in the Angolan capital, Luanda, Friday afternoon, but never arrived.

After the plane was reported missing, a lengthy search led to the discovery of the burned out wreckage Saturday in the dense bush of the vast Bwabwata National Park, located near the border of Angola and Botswana.

There is no immediate word on what may have caused the aircraft to crash.

Authorities say the dead include 10 Mozambicans, nine Angolans, five Portuguese, and one each French, Brazilian and Chinese nationals. The nationalities of the other six, which may have been the crew, have not been publicly identified.
