Narrative:
A CASA CN-235 transport plane was destroyed when it crashed near Charlesville, Liberia. All 11 occupants were killed, according to the Guinea's Defence Minister Camara.
The head of Guinea's armed forces, Gen Souleymane Kelefa Diallo, was on board the plane. He was leading Guinea's delegation to mark Liberia's annual Armed Forces Day.
