7 Security Personnel Die in Reconnaissance Plane Crash in Turkey

All people on board, including the two pilots, were members of the national police.

Seven Turkish security personnel have been killed after a plane belonging to the country’s police force crashed into a mountain in eastern Turkey, according to the Ministry of Interior.

The small jet was returning from a surveillance and reconnaissance mission late on Wednesday when it crashed into Mount Artos at an altitude of 2,200 metres (some 7,200 feet).

The mountain, a dormant volcano, is situated in Van province, near the border with Iran.
