A Namibian report says the remains of 33 people who died in a Mozambique Airlines plane crash are being transported to the Namibian capital, Windhoek.

The Namibia Press Agency reported Sunday that a Namibian military plane is carrying the remains, which are to be kept at the police mortuary.

The Angola-bound plane crashed Friday in a Namibian national park near the border with Angola and there were no survivors. Searchers found the wreckage on Saturday.

Mozambique Airlines says the aircraft was carrying six crewmembers and 27 passengers, including 10 Mozambicans, nine Angolans, five Portuguese, and one citizen each from France, Brazil and China.

An investigation of the cause is underway.
