A plane has crashed in the Democratic Republic of Congo, after clipping a mountainside, killing 17 people.
A United Nations spokeswoman said the Russian-built An-28 had been attempting to land at Bukavu in bad weather.

The plane then crashed into a forest in flames, 15km (nine miles) short of the airport runway.
