Plane crash in Bolivia kills 8, 10 hurt

An Aerocon turboprop with 18 people on board crashed Sunday in northern Bolivia, killing eight and leaving the other 10 people injured, the airline said.

Aerocon spokesman Nelson Kinn said that the plane had technical issues that led to the plane catching fire on landing in the small city of Riberalta near the Brazilian border, where the Madre de Dios River joins the Beni River.

There were 16 passengers and two crew on board the Fairchild Metro 23 aircraft.

"As they were landing, on touchdown, the plane had some kind of problem that led to fire. The people who died sustained multiple injuries and burns," Kinn told AFP.

Authorities were investigating the causes of the tragedy.
