(NBC) – All thirteen people on board an Indonesian military transport plane were killed when it crashed in bad weather Sunday.

Officials say the C-130 Hercules plane was carrying twelve tons of food supplies and cement when it crashed just minutes before its scheduled landing in the country’s easternmost province of Papua.

Three pilots and ten other personnel were aboard the plane.

Bad weather and low clouds were believed to be factors in the crash.
