A military transport plane carrying 40 passengers crashed in eastern China's Anhui province, the government said Sunday. A local official said at least five people were killed. The official Xinhua News Agency said that the crash was under investigation, citing to a military staffer who's name was not given. The staffer did not give any information about casualties, Xinhua said. An official who answered the phone at the Anhui provincial government office said that the accident occurred in Anhui's eastern Guangde County, and that five bodies had been recovered. The official, who refused to give his name, said it was unclear how many people had been aboard the plane.
