Two men were killed when their small plane crashed in the remote jungle of northern Guatemala on Sunday, and police reported finding cash and cocaine aboard the aircraft. Authorities said the twin-prop, six-seat Beechcraft King Air plane went down near the Mexican border in Peten - a sparsely populated region frequently used as a route to ship South American cocaine toward the US market. "Given the time, the place and the fact they did not report to the control tower ... we believe they were drug traffickers," Interior Minister Adela Camacho said. Police said the plane contained the bodies of the two men and an undetermined amount of partly burned US dollars and cocaine.
