11 dead in South African military plane crash

A military plane has crashed in South Africa's mountainous east, killing 11 officers, the air force said on Thursday.

"On board the aircraft was a crew of six and five passengers and it was confirmed that there are no survivors," the Air Force said in a statement.

The wreckage of the C-47 Dakota was found in the Drakensberg mountains, after a search and rescue effort was hampered by bad weather.
