Plane crashes into sea off Ivory Coast shortly after taking off from Abidjan in a storm (PHOTOS) by baba55(m) : 2:11 pm On Oct 14


4 people were killed and two others injured when a propeller-engine plane crashed into the sea near the international airport in Ivory Coast's main city Abidjan on Saturday, the Ivorian security minister said.

Four French citizens also survived the crash but were injured, Sidiki Diakite told reporters at the scene of the accident. Several Ivorian security sources said they were French soldiers.

Witnesses say a cargo plane has crashed into the Atlantic Ocean just after taking off from Ivory Coast's international airport in Abidjan.

The witnesses said they saw at least four bodies, but officials couldn't yet confirm it.










Hundreds of onlookers gathered at the beach Saturday as rescue workers ran to the scene.

Security guards on site said the plane was carrying material for the French army. It was unclear how many people were inside the plane.

The plane wreckage, broken into pieces, was scattered in the shallow waters.
