KIGALI, April 7 (AFP) - The presidents of Rwanda and Burundi, Juvenal Habyarimana and Cyprien Ntaryamira, were killed when their plane crashed at the airport here in the Rwandan capital late Wednesday, the French embassy said.

The embassy said a dozen people were aboard the aircraft, which was returning from Tanzania.

The embassy also said it was unclear if the plane had been shot down or had crashed accidentally.

But witnesses reported hearing heavy weapons fire near the airport.
