Seven die in Colombia plane crash

A small plane crashed near the southwestern Colombian city of Popayan, killing seven of the nine passengers aboard. The incident occurred just a few minutes after the aircraft, owned by a small local company, took off from the airport in Popayan, a city of about 270,000 surrounded by mountains. The other two passengers were injured and were being treated at a hospital. Video footage showed parts of the airplane scattered on top of houses in the area. Colombia’s civil aviation authority said in a statement it was investigating the cause.
