Peru Plane Crash Kills Six People

Four British tourists and two Peruvians were killed when their plane crashed near Peru's famous Nazca Lines, the state news agency reported police said.

The Nazca Lines are a series of massive geoglyphs that were engraved in the desert floor some 2,000 years ago. They are top seen from the air. Made by the Nazca culture, the geoglyphs comprise animal shapes and geometric patterns.

The plane took off about 4 p.m., the Andina news agency reported.

Firefighters and police are at present working to recover the bodies from the plane, which went down because of mechanical failures in the motor, it said, citing Alfredo Coronel, the area police chief.

A similar crash in February killed six tourists and the pilot. In 2008, five French tourists were killed when their aircraft went down near the Nazca Lines.
