A passenger jet has crashed in a city in the south of Nigeria, reportedly killing nearly everyone on board.

Reports said the aircraft "crash-landed and burst into flames", killing 56 people.

The accident happened at an airport in the oil city of Port Harcourt.

The plane is understood to be operated by private Nigerian carrier Sosoliso.

Officials with a second airline confirmed that there had been an accident, but could add no details.

Local police said they were on their way to the airport to investigate the reports.
