No survivors after Mozambican Airlines jet with 33 onboard goes missing
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.
