At least six people have been killed after an Indonesian military aircraft crashed into a number of houses just outside the capital, Jakarta.


The incident involved a Fokker-27 turboprop plane which crashed into a suburb of Jakarta on Thursday afternoon, leaving up to eight houses ablaze, Reuters cited officials as saying.

The plane, carrying seven people including the pilot, co-pilot, instructor and trainees, crashed at 2:45 p.m. local time (0745 GMT) while trying to land at Jakarta's Halim airport.

The only survivor was the co-pilot, who sustained injuries, said Air force spokesman Azman Yunus, declining to elaborate on his condition.

It was not clear if there were casualties among people in the houses.
