Crash In Indonesia

Mon Jun 05, 2006 10:53 pm

A plane operated by Indonesia's Merpati Nusantara Airlines has crashed injuring 13 people, while landing in bad weather in the eastern province of Maluku.

A company spokeswoman says one of the wings of the twin-engine turboprop was broken in the crash landing on tiny Banda island.

She says 17 people were on board, including a crew of three.

The spokeswoman says the 13 people who have been injured are receiving treatment in hospital.

She says she doesn't know the nature of their injuries.

Merpati Nusantara Airlines has sent a team to assess the damage, investigate the accident and provide help to passengers.

It's not yet clear if there were any foreigners on board.

Note: the header says "crash", but too me it seems (at least from the report) more like a landing accident, which fortunately claimed noone.
