Wreckage found of missing DR Congo plane: Aid agency

Kananga: Search teams have found wreckage from a government cargo plane that went missing last week in the Democratic Republic of Congo, a senior aid worker said Tuesday. The wreck of the Antonov 72 was found in Sankuru province in the centre of the country, Crispin Mukadi from the Catholic Relief Service said. The plane, which had been supplying equipment for a visit to Goma by President Felix Tshisekedi, disappeared with eight people aboard after taking off in bad weather from the eastern city of Beni on Thursday. Mukadi said he had visited the crash site seven kilometres (four miles) from the village of Okoto. (AFP)
