Malawi’s vice-president, Saulos Chilima, and nine other people have been killed in a plane crash, the country’s president, Lazarus Chakwera, said in a live televised address.

The wreckage of the military plane carrying Chilima and the former first lady Shanil Dzimbiri to a funeral was found in a mountainous area in the north of the country on Monday.

Air traffic controllers had told the plane not to attempt a landing at an airport in the northern city of Mzuzu due to bad weather and asked it to turn back to the capital, Lilongwe. Contact was then lost and the plane disappeared from the radar.

Chilima, a former business executive, had been vice-president since 2014.
