Republic of Congo plane with 4 crew crashes

A transport official says a small cargo plane with at least four people aboard has crashed into a cemetery in Republic of Congo.
Transport and Civil Aviation Minister Emile Ouosso says an Antonov 12 cargo plane with a pilot and three crew members aboard crashed around 7 a.m. Wednesday.
Ouosso said the number of victims was not yet known but that rescue teams were on their way to the scene, a cemetery in a southern suburb of Brazzaville.
The four-engine turboprop Antonov 12 is commonly used to transport cargo in Africa and in former Soviet Union states.
Republic of Congo is located in Central Africa and is often overshadowed by its much larger neighbor, Congo.
