Ecuador Army Plane Crash Leaves 22 Dead


A military plane crash in Ecuador’s jungle on Tuesday killed all 22 people on board, President Rafael Correa has announced.

Nineteen soldiers had been heading to a parachuting course when the aircraft went down in the Pastaza province of the country’s Amazon region.

Two pilots and one mechanic, also members of the army, were also killed.

“There are no survivors,” Correa said. “It’s a tragedy.”

The cause of the crash was not immediately clear.
