A search for bodies is continuing after a passenger jet crashed while attempting to take off in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Latest reports say 37 people died and more than 100 others were injured when the airliner, a McDonnell Douglas DC-9, skidded off the runway during heavy rain.
The accident happened in the busy market of Goma, capital of the country's eastern North Kivu province. It is thought most of the victims were people on the ground. The plane was operated by Congolese carrier Hewa Bora Airways which was added to the EU's blacklist of banned airlines just days ago.
