International Relations has confirmed that South Africans were among the 32 people who died in a United Nations plane crash in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Spokesperson Clayson Monyela says indications are that three South Africans were killed, but the number or their identities are not yet clear. It was one of the worst ever UN disasters. Only one person survived the crash.
The victims were peacekeepers and UN officials. The plane crashed while trying to land at Kinshasa’s airport.
