I mobilised officers from Sorilibi and Wamba. We rushed to the scene whereby we found one airplane which was trying to take off but crashed about one kilometer from the airstrip.”

The plane was carrying two French filmmakers at the time; both of them were killed in the crash. They were identified as Pierre Creisson, 53, and Thierry Barbier, 56.
