Peruvian airliner crashes in jungle

A commercial airliner carrying an unspecified number of passengers crashed Tuesday near a jungle town. Radio reports said at least two people were dead and about 20 others injured with burns and broken bones.

"We are standing next to the cabin and we can see the body and it appears that it is a flight attendant in her uniform. We can also see a person, it appears to be a female," a correspondent for Radioprogramas radio said. "There are bodies of children. Many bodies."

The accident involving the Tans airliner reportedly occurred sometime after 4 p.m. local time (2300 GMT), about 9 kilometers (6 miles) from the municipal airport for the jungle city Pucallpa, 305 miles (490 kilometers) northeast of the capital, Lima.

Radio reports said the plane tried to make an emergency landing during bad weather. It was not immediately clear what type of airplane was involved. Airport officials were not immediately available to confirm the information.

Lizandro Torro, a spokesman for Tans, a passenger airline run by Peru's military, said in Lima that the airline was evaluating the scope of the accident and would provide a statement shortly, AP reports.
