Bodies pulled from Kenyan plane wreckage
by UPI

DOUALA, Cameroon - Rescue workers Tuesday recovered bodies from the wreckage of a Kenyan Airlines plane that crashed in a Cameroon mangrove swamp with 114 people on board.

The swampy conditions at the crash site hindered recovery efforts, a member of the Kenyan delegation in Cameroon told the Capital News. He said local people were helping in the operation.

While there had been no official word on the fate of the Boeing 737-800's 114 passengers and crew, a Kenyan official told reporters that it was impossible anyone had survived the Friday night crash.

"After visiting the scene, there is no possibility that any passenger survived," Kenyan Transport Minister Chirau Ali Mwakwere told reporters.

The Nation said that the plane ran into trouble after taking off from Douala, Cameroon, headed to Nairobi, Kenya.

Relatives of passengers had started to travel to Cameroon Tuesday, Capital News reported. The passengers and crew were from 23 countries.
