A passenger plane thought to be carrying at least 140 people crashed in Lagos, Nigeria, on Sunday, emergencies officials there said.
The Dana Air flight from Abuja to Lagos crashed in a densely-populated area of Lagos, Nigeria's largest city, causing several house fires, reports said. Police told Agence France-Press that the plane crashed into a two-story building near the airport.
The exact number of passengers on the flight is unclear. The Lagos state government said 153 people were on board, but an official told the Associated Press that the plane was likely carrying between 140 and 150 people, as not all flights in Nigeria issue paper tickets and "don't record all passengers via computer."
