Plane crash in northern Malawi kills six
by UPI

LILONGWE, Malawi - A plane crash this weekend in the northern region of Malawi left five British tourists and their Canadian pilot dead, a police spokesman said.

Police spokesman Willie Mwaluka said the tourists were taking part in a cycling tour in the African nation and that the crash occurred during a sight-seeing expedition, The Sun of London said Sunday.

"The wreckage of the plane was found by villagers in a ravine, and there were no survivors," Mwaluka said.

"The five Britons were on a cycling tour in the northern part of Malawi and they took a plane yesterday (Saturday) with a Canadian pilot for sight-seeing," he added. "The plane was expected back at camp after 45 minutes but never returned."

The wreckage of the Cessna 2006 is being retrieved from the crash site by a Malawi army rescue team, the newspaper said.
