Seven Killed as Cargo Plane Overshoots Runway in Congo
A cargo plane plowed into a residential area in Mbuji-Mayi, Democratic Republic of Congo, on December 24.
Authorities said the Airbus 310 plane, operated by the cargo company Services Air, overshot the runway due to rainy weather and near-zero visibility before hitting several houses.
At least seven people on the ground were killed in the accident. The plane was carrying four crew members at the time; all of them remained unhurt.
The accident is being investigated.
