Plane crash near Nigeria's Lagos airport kills 16

The aircraft, operated by Nigeria's Associated Airlines, came down in open ground, close to an aviation fuel depot in the commercial capital.

Local media reported it was carrying the body of a former regional governor, and members of his family, to his funeral. A Reuters reporter saw emergency workers take a coffin out of the wreckage.

"The plane was making a lot of noise before it came down," Rasheed Olajide, an engineer at the airport, told Reuters.

The aircraft appeared to make a maneuver to avoid a residential area, he added.
