Plane Carrying Malawi’s VP Goes Missing

A military aircraft carrying Malawi’s vice president Saulos Chilima has been reported missing after it failed to make a landing Monday morning, the government said.

The plane, which took off just after 9:00 am local time (0700 GMT), was carrying 51-year-old Chilima and nine others.

According to a government statement, “All efforts by aviation authorities to make contact with the aircraft since it went off the radar have failed thus far.”
