KINSHASA, Congo (AP) — A Congolese official says that a plane has crashed in the eastern city of Goma, killing many passengers.

The governor of the province of North Kivu Province, Julien Paluku, said a Fokker airplane of the private airline CAA was carrying about 50 people. He said that at least three people survived the crash.

Paluku said the plane was flying from Lodja in East Kasai Province in the center of the country. He said the aircraft crashed in Goma but it did not hit any people on the ground.
