Indonesia military plane crash in residential area kills 141

An Indonesian air force Hercules C-130 plane with 12 crew aboard crashed Tuesday into a residential neighborhood in the country’s third-largest city Medan. At least 70 people were reported dead.

An Indonesian police official says more than 140 bodies have been recovered from the crash of a military plane in Medan.

Rescue teams are searching rubble in the residential neighborhood where the plane crashed Tuesday but hold out little hope of finding survivors.

North Sumatra police major A. Tarigan told TVOne on Wednesday that 141 bodies have been recovered.

Air force chief Air Marshal Agus Supriatna said there were 122 people on the plane.
