LIMA, Peru (AP) —After two days of rain and fog, rescue helicopters on Saturday spotted the wreckage of a Peruvian airliner that plowed into a mountain with 46 people aboard, including eight children. Officials confirmed there were no survivors and said the recovery effort would be slow.
Pieces of the TANS airliner were scattered over an area 1,300 feet wide and about 1,600 feet below the peak of the mountain, Transportation Minister Javier Reategui said.
The plane’s fuel exploded after the airliner hit the mountain and rescue teams found only small pieces of metal and body parts, Reategui said.
The 11,550-foot high mountain — part of the Andes mountain range — Is IO miles northwest of the town of Chacha-poyas, which is situated in Peru’s high jungle, about 400 miles north of Lima.Bush promotes benefits of his economic plan
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Bush sought to make the case Saturday that his economic plan would create jobs and bolster consumer confidence through $59 billion in tax savings this year alone.
Further help would come from ending dividend taxes for 84 milhon investors, the president said in his weekly radio address. He said that tax was unfair, a drag on the economy and a burden for those who depend on dividends for a steady income.UN may invite scientists for private interviews
BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) — U.N. arms inspectors may start inviting Iraqi scientists suspected of being finked to weapons programs for private interviews this week, a U.N. spokesman said Saturday, in a step Washington sees as key to uncovering Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction.
The inspectors visited more suspected weapons sites Saturday.
U.N. spokesman Hiro Ueki said a team of missiles experts revisited the Ibn Sina military complex at Tarmiya, 25 miles north of Baghdad, a site in which Iraqi scientists in the 1980s had tried to enrich uranium to a level suitable for atomic bombs.
