    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Indonesian air force Hercules C-130 aircraft crashed in country's Papua province on Sunday resulting in death of all 13 people on board, media reported.

    Victims of the crash included three pilots and 10 military personnel, BBC reported.

    The plane was carrying food supplies from the city of Timika to Wamena and crashed in mountainous area near its destination, most likely, due to bad weather conditions.
