All those on board are feared dead and a rescue official said he believed a number of people had been killed on the ground.

A fire raged at the scene of the crash and a number of buildings were badly damaged.

An official with the National Emergency Management Agency said the plane had hit two buildings: a church and a two-storey residential building.
