UN plane crashes in Haiti with 6-10 onboard

UNITED NATIONS -- (AP) -- The United Nations says a U.N. plane monitoring the border between Haiti and the Dominican Republic crashed with 6 to 10 military personnel on board.

U.N. spokeswoman Michele Montas said the Uruguayan surveillance plane, assigned to the U.N. peacekeeping mission in Haiti, went down Friday in rugged terrain west of Fonds-Verettes near the border.

She said teams have been sent to the area on foot, and it was not known whether there were any survivors.
