9 citizens were killed yesterday in the crash of a small airplane carrying mining company staff in northwestern Peru, a regional police chief informed AFP.

“Seven passengers and two crew members died in the accident, which was due to bad weather and their getting hung up in a high-tension cable,” said Colonel Roger Torres Mendoza, the police chief of La Libertad region.

The plane’s wreckage was positioned in a ravine alongside a highway in the northwestern area.

The people were staff for a Peruvian mining company, Marsa, which owns a gold mine in the area.
