KANO, Nigeria -- A day after a commercial airliner crashed into a crowded neighbourhood in Kano, the International Red Cross put the death toll at 148.

Most of the dead were children at an Islamic school the plane slammed into, creating a giant fireball.

An additional 49 people on the ground were injured by the crash, the IRC said.

The EAS Airlines (Executive Airline Services) plane had just taken off on Saturday from Kano, en route to Lagos in the southwestern part of the country, when it crashed.

It went down about 1.2 miles from the airport, crashing into the Gwammaja neighbourhood and erupting into a massive blaze that burned 10 houses, a school, and two mosques.
