A surveillance plane assigned to the U.N. peacekeeping mission in Haiti crashed into a mountain Friday, killing all 11 military personnel on board, the United Nations said.

U.N. spokeswoman Michele Montas in New York said the Uruguayan CASA212 aircraft went down in rugged terrain west of Fonds-Verrettes near the border with the Dominican Republic, some 45 kilometers (28 miles) from the capital, Port-au-Prince.

“The aircraft was on a regular reconnaissance flight,” Montas said in a statement.Rescue teams had to reach the area by foot because there were no roads nearby, and they found no survivors, she said.
