At least 19 people were killed on Sunday after a commercial flight operated by Precision Air crash-landed in Lake Victoria in Tanzania.

Iran PressAfrica: The country’s Prime Minister, Kassim Majaliwa, said officials believe all bodies have been recovered from the airplane.

“We’re starting to pull out the luggage and personal items from the aircraft. A team of doctors and security agencies have started the process of identifying the dead and notifying the families,” Majaliwa said.

Earlier, the airline said that 26 of the 43 people on board had been rescued.

According to the Prime Minister, it is currently unclear whether two of the deceased were local residents assisting with the rescue operations or airline staff excluded from the flight manifest.

“We will investigate where did the other two come from,” he said.
