Mozambique Airlines Plane Crash in Namibia Kills 34, NPA Reports

Nov. 30 (Bloomberg) -- A LAM Mozambique Airlines plane en route to Luanda in Angola crashed in the north of Namibia, killing 28 passengers and six crew members, the state-owned Namibian Press Agency reported.

The plane crashed in Bwabwata National Park near the border with Angola and Botswana, NPA reported, citing Bollen Sankwasa, deputy police commissioner of Namibia’s Zambezi Region.

Flight TM470 went missing yesterday after leaving Mozambique’s capital, Maputo, at 11:26 a.m., LAM said in a statement on its website yesterday, without giving the type of aircraft involved. The airline initially said it had obtained information that the plane, which was due to arrive in Luanda at 2:10 p.m., had landed near Rundu in northern Namibia.

Calls by Bloomberg to the airline in Maputo and the police in Namibia weren’t answered.
