Jet crash in Mexico kills all 13 aboard

Reuters MEXICO CITY (Reuters) — A plane crash in a remote mountain region in northern Mexico claimed the lives of all 13 people on board, including a family of five who were flying back from watching a boxing match in Las Vegas, authorities and local media said on Monday.

The wreckage of the plane that took off from Las Vegas on Sunday was found via aerial surveillance in the northern municipality of Ocampo, the government of Coahuila State said in a statement.

A photograph published on local television network Milenio showed what it said were the burned remnants of the plane, broken into pieces, spread over charred earth.

In a statement, Canada’s Bombardier Inc. identified the jet as a Challenger 601 and said the plane had gone missing about 150 nautical miles from the northern Mexican city of Monclova.Speech
