At least 68 people are dead following the crash of a military plane on the Indonesian island of Java. Air force official Suyono says he expects the death toll to rise following Wednesday morning's crash. Suyono goes by only one name. Air force spokesman Bambang Sulistyo said the C-130 Hercules was carrying at least 112 passengers and crew. It was on a routine training mission when it crashed near the base in East Java province, smashing into houses and then skidding into a rice field and bursting into flames.
