  • Description

    As a massive search begins to seek out the killers of 10 of the 18 survivors of a Viscount plane crash in the Urungwe Tribal Trust Lands in Rhodesia, reporters have been taken to the site of the crash and subsequent massacre.

    SYNOPSIS: The Air Rhodesia Viscount airliner crashed on Sunday night after taking off from the Northern community of Kariba for Salisbury. On board were holidaymakers returning home. Eighteen of the 56 passengers survived, of whom 10 were later shot dead.

    After asking survivors to show themselves on the pretext of bringing help, the killers shot them in clod blood, and then ransacked through suitcases. In Lusaka Patriotic Front Leader Joshua Nkoma claimed that his forces had shot down the airliner but denied his men massacred the survivors.
