Eight feared dead in Suriname air crash
Paramaribo: An Antonov plane belonging to a Surinamese airline crashed on Saturday in the South American nation`s remote hinterland, with two crew members and six passengers on board feared killed, authorities said.
The twin-engine Antonov AN-28 crashed soon after taking off from Godo Olo airport in east Suriname, the Civil Aviation Service said. Rescuers trying to reach the site by boat and helicopter could not get there before dark due to bad weather.
Officials could not say what caused the crash.
