A cargo plane crashed into a commercial building in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi, shortly after taking off from the city's main airport on Wednesday and the four crew members on board were feared dead, the Kenyan Airports Authority (KAA) said.

KAA said on its Twitter feed all the crew members were "feared to have perished" after the plane crashed into shops in Nairobi's Embekasi neighborhood.
