Authorities on Thursday continued searching for survivors on a plane carrying 11 people that crashed in Cameroon on Wednesday.

The aircraft, whose type and make was not made public, was flying from Yaounde-Nsimalen airport to Belabo, in the east of the country, a ministry statement said.

The aircraft had been chartered by a private company, the Cameroon Oil Transportation (COTCO) which is building and running a pipeline between Cameroon and neighbouring Chad.
