Plane crashes in Lagos, Nigeria; hundreds feared dead

Post by el on Sun Jun 03, 2012 10:55 am

A passenger plane carrying 147 people crashed in Lagos, Nigeria, on Sunday, state rescue officials told CNN.

According to the network, the Dana Air flight crashed in a densely populated area of Lagos, Nigeria's largest city, causing several house fires, emergencies officials there said.

Lagos police told Agence France-Press that the plane crashed into a two-story building near the airport.

No official word yet on casualties, though Harold Denuren, head of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, told London's Telegraph, "I don't believe there are any survivors."

"I can confirm that one of our planes crashed today on the outskirts of Lagos," a spokesman for Dana Air told AFP.

A Twitter user posted a photo that appears to show the rear of the plane after the crash.

According to Al Jazeera, witnesses on the ground "believe it may have hit a power line" before it crashed into the building and burst into flames.
