YAOUNDE, Cameroon (AP) - Cameroon's government spokesman says search teams have found the wreckage of a small plane carrying top executives of an Australian mining firm that disappeared over the weekend.
Spokesman Issa Tchiroma Bakary says the missing plane was found Monday afternoon in dense jungle inside Republic of Congo. No survivors were found.
The aircraft, chartered by Australian company Sundance Resources Ltd., went missing Saturday half an hour after it left Cameroon's capital, Yaounde, en route for Yangadou in Republic of Congo to visit an iron ore mining site, Cameroon's government said. It said 11 people had been aboard, including six Australians, two French, an American and two Britons.
