A plane with 17 passengers and 2 crew members crashed into a crowded residential area in Goma shortly after take off.  The Dornier 228-200 was at full capacity and was headed for the city of Beni, 350 km (220 miles) to the north when it went down.  There are at least 9 casualties on the ground.

Goma was given the title of the World’s Most Dangerous City (as per this 2011 post that is a recommended read – we were going to fly this route) for reasons this didn’t include the poor safety record of their airlines.
