Military plane crashes in the Philippines, killing 50 people
Aljazeera says all 96 passengers on board a Philippines Air Force transport plane that crashed on Sunday killing at least 50 people – on the plane and on the ground – have been accounted for, military chief Cirilito Sobejana said on Monday.
Sobejana said 49 soldiers were injured in the fiery crash, which happened when the C-130 Hercules transport plane missed the runway while trying to land on the southern island of Jolo where the military is fighting the Abu Sayyaf and other armed groups.
