GOMA, DRCongo, April 18, 2008 (AFP)
- The death toll from a plane crash in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo
rose to 47 Friday after five bodies were found in the rubble of wrecked
houses and two people died of their injuries.
The remains found were buried immediately
in a local cemetery in Goma, capital of the vast central African country's
eastern Nord-Kivu province, where the ageing DC-9 crashed on take-off on
Tuesday, Red Cross officials said.
The two survivors died Thursday, the
head of city's general hospital, Dr Didier Ndabaweje, told AFP.
