  • 5 dead after military plane crashes

The FBI has reportedly joined local and state agencies to investigate what caused a U.S. Marine Corps KC-130 to corkscrew out of the sky and into a soybean field in MS, killing at least 16. Authorities provided few details on what went wrong, or the nature of the Marines´ mission.

Captain Sarah Burns, a spokeswoman for the Marine Corps, said only that a US Marines KC-130 Hercules transport aircraft had "experienced a mishap", with news media initially reporting five confirmed deaths. The cause of the crash was under investigation, though no foul play was suspected. "He will be missed, and I send my condolences and prayers to his family and friends".

Mr Jones said a man borrowed his mobile phone to report to authorities that there were bodies across a highway, more than a mile from the crash site.

The KC-130 plane was from the Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, North Carolina.
