MILITARY PLANE CRASH IN INDONESIA

Labor is deeply saddened by the news that an Indonesian military plane has crashed in a residential area of North Sumatra.

It is reported 113 people were on board the C130 Hercules.

We extend our sympathies to the loved ones of those killed.  We wish those injured full and speedy recoveries.

Our thoughts are with our friends, the Indonesian people, at this very difficult time.
