(07-02 15:10)

Four people were killed when their cargo plane crashed shortly after takeoff in Nairobi, a police official said Wednesday.
The plane transporting the mild stimulant known as Khat to the Somali capital, Mogadishu, crashed into a commercial building after taking off from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport early Wednesday, said Joseph Ngisa, the airport's head of police investigations.
Ngisa said preliminary investigations found the plane was flying low after takeoff and might have hit an electrical pole before crashing in the Embakasi area of the city.
Ngisa said the four on board included the pilot and his assistant. --AP
