Five Colombian Police Die in Plane Crash - 29th July 2011

Five Colombian police were killed and a sixth officer injured Thursday when their small aircraft crashed in a mountainous area of the northwestern province of Antioquia, an official source told Efe.

The narcotics-squad detail was traveling from Ituango to Bogota aboard a Cessna aircraft.

The plane went down about five minutes after taking off from Los Galgos airport, according to the source, who insisted the crash was the result of an accident, not an attack by rebels or armed drug traffickers.

Killed in the crash were a captain, lieutenant and three non-commissioned officers.

The crash survivor, also an NCO, was taken by helicopter to a police clinic in Medellin, the provincial capital, the force said in a statement. EFE Source
