A passenger plane has crashed in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, killing at least 30 people.
Congolese officials say a Fokker airplane belonging to the private CAA airline company crashed Monday in a residential area of Goma, capital of North Kivu province.
Police sources say at least three people survived the crash and are being treated at the hospital.
The plane was heading to Goma from the central mining town of Lodja when it went down. The exact number of passengers on board the flight is not known.
A spokesman for the United Nations mission in the Congo said the area was experiencing bad weather at the time of the crash.
