May 7 (Bloomberg) -- A passenger plane carrying 27 people crashed in bad weather when it was about to land in the Indonesian province of West Papua, killing at least 15, the Associated Press reported, citing local officials.

The Chinese-made Xian MA60 twin-turboprop aircraft belonging to a state-owned airline went down just before landing in Kaimana, Bambang Ervan, a transportation ministry spokesman, told AP, adding it was difficult to say if there were any survivors.
