30 On Board, Ten Rescued
A twin-engine prop aircraft of undetermined type crashed Tuesday
in the African nation of Gabon, killing at least 14 of the 30
people on board.
Initial reports from the scene, near Libreville (the capital of
Gabon), said the aircraft was operated by Gabon Express. It had
reportedly just taken off from Libreville on the way to Franceville
when it went down about 50 yards off the Gabon coast.
Local radio reports said the crew experienced some sort of
technical problem just after take-off and was trying to return to
the airport when it went down.
Ten people were rescued from the water. Fourteen bodies have
been recovered so far. As darkness fell over Libreville, recovery
crews were trying to attach a cable to the aircraft wreckage so it
could be pulled to shore.
