At least four people were killed after a cargo plane crashed into the Atlantic Ocean just after taking off from Ivory Coast's international airport in Abidjan.
Firefighters have removed two bodies from the plane, which had broken into several pieces and come to rest near the beach. Six others were believed to have been injured in the crash of the Antonov aircraft which police said had 10 people on board.
Two other bodies were visible in the wreckage.
The crash occurred during a storm with heavy rain and lightning. The aircraft was thought to be a turbo-prop-driven cargo plane.
The plane was carrying freight for the French army, Koaci.com reported.
