Chartered plane crashed flying tourist route in Cambodia, 20 feared killed

A chartered plane flying Monday between two popular tourist destinations in Cambodia has crashed, with at least 20 people on board feared killed, an aviation official said.

The plane, a Russian-made AN-24, was flying from Siem Reap - where the famous Angkor Wat temple complex is located - to Sihanoukville, a coastal city with access to beaches, said Him Sarun, Cabinet chief for the Secretariat of Civil Aviation.

Foreigners were believed to be among the passengers, though their number and nationalities were not immediately available. The name of the charter airline also could not immediately be confirmed.
