Accra, June 03 (QNA) - At least ten people were killed after a cargo plane crash landed in Ghana's capital Accra last night, hitting a bus full of passengers.
The ten passengers on board the bus were killed while all four crew members survived, according to officials.
Local TV showed the heavily damaged Boeing 727 Allied Air plane lying across a road close to Kotoka International Airport.
Ghana's airport operator said the plane, which had flown from Lagos, Nigeria, overshot the runway.
"The aircraft collided with a minivan, resulting in 10 confirmed fatalities," the statement added.
Ghana's Vice President John Dramani Mahama told reporters at the airport that a thorough investigation would be carried out.
"No early conclusions should be drawn. We should allow investigations to arrive at the actual cause. But I can assure Ghanaians that the situation is under control," he said.
Ghana Airport Company said flights were continuing as normal at the airport. (QNA)
