BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) — Colombian officials say a plane crashed in the country's southwestern jungle, killing 10 people on board.

The director of operations for Colombia's civil aeronautics agency said Sunday that the bodies have been recovered from the flight, which was going from Araracuara to Florencia in the country's southwest.

Col. Juan Carlos Rocha said the plane was reported missing at about 3 p.m. (2000 GMT) Saturday. Officials are trying to determine why it crashed in the Puerto Santander region as well as the identities of the dead.

Officials said the cause of the crash had not yet been determined.
