HARARE, Zimbabwe (AP) — A small plane owned by a diamond mining company has crashed in Zimbabwe and aviation authorities say preliminary reports indicate that all six people on board have been killed. Authorities say the plane, which crashed near the Murowa Diamonds mine in southern Zimbabwe, belonged to RioZim Limited. An official from Zimbabwe’s Civil Aviation Authority says police will release more details, including the names of the dead after their families had been informed. Local media reported that the plane was a Cessna small aircraft. RioZim was previously part of the British-Australian mining group Rio Tinto but is now wholly Zimbabwe-owned.
