A Bolivian air force plane crashed during a humanitarian mission, killing all six people on board, said the Defence Ministry on Saturday.

The accident claimed the lives of two crew members and four Spanish passengers who were supposed to be repatriated due to the COVID-19 outbreak in the country.

The tragedy occured near north-central Bolivia’s city of Trinidad, the country’s Air Force wrote on Twitter, confirming that two Bolivian crew and four Spaniards were all killed.

The twin-engine propeller plane would have arrived in the country’s largest city of Santa Cruz, where the Spaniards were about to transfer for a flight to their homeland.

Investigation was underway to determine the cause of the incident, authorities said.
