No survivors after Mozambican Airlines jet with 33 onboard goes missing
The wreckage of the missing Mozambique Airlines plane has been found in northeast Namibia, and there are no survivors in the crash, according to a local police official.

The plane crashed in a game park, a remote area that is home to wildlife including elephants and lions. 

"The plane has been completely burnt to ashes and there are no survivors," Namibian Police Force Deputy Commissioner, Willy Bampton, told Reuters.

Flight TM 470 left the city of Maputo on Friday for the Angolan capital, Luanda, and lost contact with air traffic controllers.

In Maputo, Mozambican Airlines, LAM, issued a statement revising the passenger list down to 27, rather than the 28 earlier reported, along with the six crew members, AFP reported.

The search for the wreckage started on Friday, but was canceled due to bad weather.

One Chinese national was on the plane, quoting the Chinese Embassy in Mozambique. Also among the passengers were 10 Mozambicans, nine Angolans, five Portuguese, one French person and one Brazilian, Xinhua news agency reported.
