PRETORIA, June 3 (Itar-Tass) — A large cargo aircraft has crashed near Kotoka International Airport in the northeastern outskirt of Accra, the capital of Ghana. It’s still unknown how many passengers were onboard. The plane fell down minutes after takeoff in the vicinity of a sport stadium, local media reports.
A local radio station has said that the plane belongs to the Nigerian Allied Air Cargo Company.
The cargo plane has reportedly smashed down an airport fence and rammed into a microbus full of passengers as it was falling down.
Witnesses are saying they can see at least ten dead bodies lying near the plane wreckage and the rammed microbus.
