Eleven people are still missing after a military helicopter
crashed in the country's northern jungle, authorities said.
Speaking on Thursday,
army commander Jorge Luis Lagunas told Reuters, "The accident
happened this afternoon during a flight along the Colombian border.
Eleven people are missing, including two policemen, a young girl
and a civilian woman. We have rescued four injured officers with
cuts and bruises."
The helicopter, type unknown, went down in the rapids of the

It was the second deadly crash involving a military aircraft

down in the south of the country, killing 13 soldiers.
