A small plane crashed shortly after take-off in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo on Wednesday, June 16, killing all three people on board.

The plane was carrying two pilots and a passenger when it crashed near Kavumu airport, which serves Bukavu, the capital of South Kivu province, , the region’s governor said.

First responders in fluorescent bibs picked through the crumpled wreckage in the middle of a large field, according to a Reuters witness at the crash site.

“I confirm the crash. There were three people on board who all died,” South Kivu Governor Theo Kasi told Reuters.
