144 PEOPLE KILLED IN INDONESIAN PLANE CRASH

Date:

Indonesian officials say 141 bodies have been recovered after a military transport plane crashed in a residential area of Medan on Tuesday.

The military says none of the 122 people on board the Hercules C-130 survived when it hit houses and a hotel before bursting into flames.

Many of the victims are thought to have been relatives of servicemen and women.

But the latest death toll indicates there were at least 19 people killed on the ground.

The military has repeatedly revised the passenger list, a sign of how loosely it keeps track of who gets on its planes-BBC
