    LAGOS, Nigeria - A Nigerian passenger jet crashed on landing in the southern city of Port Harcourt on Saturday, and a radio station said at least 56 people were killed.




    Burned bodies lay across the landing area after the plane broke into pieces, said an airport worker who refused to give his name.

    The Sosoliso Airlines from Abuja was carrying 110 people when it "crash landed and burst into flames," the radio station Rhythm FM reported. Fifty-six bodies have been recovered and seven people were taken to the hospital, the report said.

    The cause of the crash on a day of scattered thunderstorms was unclear.

    Sam Adurogboye, a spokesman for the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, confirmed a plane had crashed but said he had no further details.

    "Yes, there was a crash," he told The Associated Press.

    The airport worker described a horrific scene.

    "The place where I'm standing now is scattered with corpses," the worker said on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.

    The plane shattered into pieces, and only two people survived, the worker said.

    Nigerian airports have come under criticism in recent months following a string of near-misses and an incident in which an Air France passenger jet crashed into a herd of cows on the runway at Port Harcourt.

    International airlines also briefly suspended flights at Lagos' international airport because of holes in the runway.

    In October, an Abuja-bound Boeing 737-200 crashed after taking off from the airport at Lagos, Nigeria's biggest city, killing 117 people on board the Bellview Airlines flight.

    The cause of that crash is unknown, but U.S. investigators sent to help with the investigation ruled out terrorism, an official at Nigeria's Aviation Ministry said last month.

    Nigerian-owned Sosoliso Airlines was established in 1994. It began scheduled flights as a domestic airline in July 2000 and now flies to six Nigerian cities, according to its Web site.
