BBC: Air crash kills Kenya politicians

10 April 2006

A Kenyan aircraft carrying prominent politicians and tribal elders has crashed in the north of the country. Two assistant ministers and the deputy leader of the main opposition were among 14 people killed when the plane crashed into a hill in bad weather.

Kenyan President Mwai Kibaki has expressed "shock and disbelief" at the disaster. Two assistant ministers from his administration, Mirugi Kariuki and Titus Ngoyoni, are among the dead. Bonaya Godana, the deputy leader of Kenya's main opposition party, Kanu, also died.

Fourteen people have been burned beyond recognition," a Red Cross official at the scene of the crash said.

The cause of the crash is not yet known. Whenever a plane crashes with prominent people on board I think it's suspicious.

Just a tad suspicious, yes.

Slaughtered imo.

The Kenyan politicians were on their way to a peace conference. The area where the plane crashed is very unstable, and the clan fighters there are said to have sophisticated weapons.

Salvage work in northern Kenya continues after a military jet carrying 14 people, including prominent politicians on their way to a peace conference, crashed into a hill on Monday.

Two South African cargo planes have been shot down by surface-to-air missiles in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Or at least one of the planes were shot down by a surface-to-air missile, the other plane is missing. There is a full-scale war in the eastern part of DRC.

I suspect that the Kenyan plane might have been shot down as well. Does anyone know if the survivors of the Kenyan crash said anything about what happened?
