Goma: A plane crash in Goma city of DR Congo on Sunday left at least 24 people dead, media reports said.

The plane crashed into a house during the mishap.


The victims included the family members of the house on which the plane crashed among others.


The small aircraft went down in the Mapendo neighbourhood after "missing" its take-off from the city's airport on Sunday morning, North Kivu regional governor Nzanzu Kasivita was quoted as saying by BBC.


17 passengers and two crew members were on board the plane when the crash occurred.


The Dornier-228 twin-turboprop aircraft - owned by private carrier Busy Bee - crashed about a minute after take-off, a source at Goma airport told the BBC.


The plane had been scheduled to fly to Beni, 350km (220 miles) north of Goma, reported the British media.


The cause of the crash is still not known.
