2 dead in northern Kenya plane crash

 

A pilot and co-pilot died in a plane crash in northern Kenya on Saturday.

A light aircraft, which was carrying exam papers for the Kenya National Examination Council, crashed in Marsabit County, according to an official.

“The aircraft, registration number 5Y-JKN, departed Nairobi Wilson Airport at 8:20 a.m. with two people on board and crashed into a hill at approximately 10:10 a.m.,” said Gilber Kibe, director of the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority.

“Unfortunately, there were no survivors,” he added.

Kenyan police and other agencies have launched an investigation, the official said.

The incident occurred just meters away from where a plane had crashed in 2006, killing 14 people including three ministers and four parliamentarians.
