A plane carrying 11 people crashed in a forest in central Cameroon on Wednesday, the Ministry of Transport said.

Air traffic controllers "lost radio contact with the aircraft" which was later "located in the forest" near Nanga Eboko, around 150 kilometres (90 miles) northeast of the capital Yaounde, the ministry said in a statement.

A ministry official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the plane "crashed" and rescuers were "trying to find the occupants".
