Wreckage seen 2 days after plane carrying 10 lost in Kenya

A Kenyan official says the wreckage of a plane carrying 10 people has been spotted southwest of the Aberdare Mountain range nearly two days after it disappeared.

Transport Ministry Principal Secretary Paul Mwangi Maringa said Thursday it was traced in Njambini.

Officials said Wednesday the search and rescue efforts were being focused on the mountain range in central Kenya where a mobile phone signal from the plane was located.

The plane had been flying from the western town of Kitale to the capital city, Nairobi. On board were two pilots and eight passengers.

Crashes involving light aircraft are reported every other month in Kenya. Many people on board escape with injuries.
