Passenger plane crashes in Congolese town of Goma
KINSHASA (Reuters) - A small plane carrying passengers and cargo crashed on Monday in the eastern Congolese town of Goma, a Reuters witness said.
It was not immediately clear how many people were on board or how many casualties there were.
Democratic Republic of Congo has one of the world's worst air safety records. There have been numerous crashes in Goma, where the runway has not been fully repaired after a volcanic eruption in 2002 left it covered in lava.
