Fatal plane crash in Nigeria




A passenger plane with 27 on board has crashed shortly after take-off from Lagos airport in Nigeria.

According to the BBC, at least 13 people were killed and others have been injured.

The Associated Airlines plane was on its way to Akure, about 140 miles north east of Lagos.

Officials said the aircraft plunged to the ground and burst into flames within the airport perimeter.

There have been seven major air crashes in Nigeria since 1992.

In June 2012, 163 people were killed after a dual engine failure caused a Dana Air plane to crash into a Lagos apartment block.

Associated Airlines was established in 1996 and operates passenger, charter and cargo services in Nigeria, with its headquarters in Lagos.
