At least 10 killed in Honduras plane crash: Red Cross

At least 10 people were killed on Monday when a small commercial plane with about 20 passengers onboard crashed near the Honduran capital Tegucigalpa, a Red Cross official said.

"There are more than 10 (dead), there are bodies in the cabin of the plane," Red Cross emergency responder Luis Romero told AFP.

The chief of the Honduran Air Force, Colonel Ruiz Pastor Lanza, said the military branch received word that a flight from San Pedro Sula to Tegucigalpa had lost contact with air traffic controllers, and that helicopters and ambulances were dispatched to the region.
