One killed, four injured in Cameroon plane crash

One person was killed and four injured when a light aircraft coming from Chad crashed in northern Cameroon on Monday, airport authorities said.

"Five people were on board, including two pilots and three passengers," said airport director Michel Mbollo in the northern town of Ngaoundere.

He said they were all taken to hospital where a medical source told AFP on condition of anonymity, that one of the pilots had died from severe injuries.

The plane was headed from N'Djamena to Douala in southern Cameroon.

Mbollo said it had reported a problem mid-flight and asked to land in Ngaoundere "but it went badly."
