No survivors as Mozambique Airlines wreckage found


Wreckage from Mozambique Airlines flight TM 470 has been found in the northeast of Namibia.

A Namibia police official has confirmed that there are no survivors.

The plane, which left Maputo on Friday carrying 33 passengers and crew, was heading for the Angolan capital Luanda when contact was lost.

Authorities have declined to comment directly on the crash but have strongly denied accusations of disorganisation by Mozambique officials. Allegations that there had been no passenger list for the flight have also been refuted.

There is currently no confirmed cause for the crash. However there had been reports of heavy rain in the region at the time.
