Three people were killed in a plane crash Wednesday at Kavumu airport in South Kivu
province in eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC),
The plane was carrying two pilots and a passenger when it crashed near Kavumu airport,
which serves Bukavu, the capital of South Kivu province.
First responders in fluorescent bibs picked through the crumpled wreckage in the middle
of a large field, according to a Reuters witness at the crash site.
“I confirm the crash. There were three people on board who all died,” South Kivu
Governor Theo Kasi told Reuters.
