LIMA (Reuters) - A helicopter chartered by French oil company Perenco crashed in northern Peru on Sunday, killing all nine passengers aboard, including five who worked for the company, local media reported.
The helicopter went down in the sparsely populated region of Loreto, Peru, near the border with Ecuador, according to media reports.
"(Perenco) has confirmed to us that they're all dead," a victim's family member told local radio RPP.
Neither Perenco nor the government have confirmed the accident.
