A Laos air force plane carrying about 20 people including the country’s defense minister and other senior officials crashed on Saturday, Thailand’s Foreign Ministry said.

There was no immediate word on casualties, said the Foreign Ministry spokesman, Sek Wannamethee.

The plane took off from the capital, Vientiane, early Saturday morning and crashed in the northeastern province of Xiangkhoung, about 470 kilometers (290 miles) away.

The aircraft was carrying Lao Defense Minister Douangchay Phichit, who is also a deputy prime minister, and several other high-ranking officials, including the governor of Vientiane.
