VIDEO & REPORTS

"We were forced to fly the crashed plane"

A passenger plane crashed in Nigeria's largest city on Sunday with all 153 people on board presumed dead. An unknown number of others on the ground were also believed killed.

The Dana Air flight from Abuja to Lagos went down in a densely-populated area of Lagos, causing several house fires, reports said.
A spokesman for the airline said 147 passengers and six crew members were on the flight, according to AFP.
The cause of the crash of the Boeing MD-83 was unclear, but a military official told the Associated Press that the plane's pilots radioed the Lagos control tower just before the crash and reported having engine trouble.
AFP reports an emergency official and an aviation official said the cockpit recorder had been located and handed over to police.
Nigerian officials confirmed no survivors from the crash had been found. "We presume they are dead," Tunji Oketunbi, spokesman for the country's Accident Investigations Bureau, told AFP.


President Goodluck Jonathan declared three days of national mourning.
Officials feared a number of people were killed or injured on the ground, but no figures were immediately available.
There were reports of chaotic scenes after the crash, with large crowds of curious onlookers blocking access for rescue workers.
According to Al Jazeera, witnesses on the ground believe the plane "may have hit a power line" before it crashed into a building and burst into flames.
"Thick smoke rose from the area near the Lagos airport and flames could be seen coming from the building," the AFP reported. "Residents said the plane had been coming in low, making a loud noise, when it slammed into the residential area."
According to the Dana Air website, it operates several daily Lagos-Abuja and Lagos-Abuja flights using Boeing MD83 planes.
Sunday's crash comes just a day after a Boeing 727 cargo plane flying from Lagos crashed in Accra, the capital of Ghana, hitting a bus and killing at least 10.
Lagos' international airport is a major hub for West Africa, accommodating more than 2.3 million passengers in 2009, according to the AP.

Love the article on Gaddafi
We must rise above tribalism & divide & rule of the colonialist who stole & looted our treasure & planted their puppets to lord it over us..they alone can decide on whosoever is performing & the one that is corrupt..but the most corrupt nations are the western countries that plunder the resources of other nations & make them poorer & aid the rulers to steal & keep such ill gotten wealth in their country..yemen,syria etc have killed more than gadhafi but its not A̷̷̴ good investment for the west(this is laughable)because oil is not in these countries..when obasanjo annihilated the odi people in rivers state, they looked away because its in their favour & interest..one day!

Hello from
Johannesburg
I was amazed to find a website for Africans in Hungary.
Looks like you have quite a community there. Here in SA we have some three million Zimbabweans living in exile and not much sign of going home ... but in Hungary??? Hope to meet you on one of my trips to Europe; was in Steirmark Austria near the Hungarian border earlier this month. Every good wish for 2011. Geoff in Jo'burg

I'm impressed by
ANH work but...
Interesting interview...
I think from what have been said, the Nigerian embassy here seem to be more concern about its nationals than we are for ourselves. Our complete disregard for the laws of Hungary isn't going to help Nigeria's image or going to promote what the Embassy is trying to showcase. So if the journalists could zoom-in more focus on Nigerians living, working and studying here in Hungary than scrutinizing the embassy and its every move, i think it would be of tremendous help to the embassy serving its nationals better and create more awareness about where we live . Taking the issues of illicit drugs and forged documents as typical examples.. there are so many cases of Nigerians been involved. But i am yet to read of it in e.news. So i think if only you and your journalists could write more about it and follow up on the stories i think it will make our nationals more aware of what to expect. I wouldn't say i am not impressed with your work but you need to be more of a two way street rather than a one way street . Keep up the good work... Sylvia
