French soldiers pulling out the wreckage of a cargo plane that crashed near the airport in Ivory Coast's main city, Abidjan, on Saturday. The plane, which had 10 people on board, had taken off from Burkina Faso's capital, Ouagadougou. Four Moldovan nationals were killed, while the other six people were injured in the crash, according to Ivorian and French officials. It is not yet known what caused the crash, but officials said the weather was "very bad" at the time. The plane was chartered by the French army as part of an anti-extremist operation, under which France maintains a 4,000-man mission in the region.
