BOGOTA — A private helicopter on a mission for the military crashed in the country's northwest, killing all five people aboard.

Colombia's army General Leonardo Pinto said Saturday that two soldiers, a police officer, a military priest and the aircraft's pilot died in the crash in the rural region of Anori, about 180 miles (300 kilometers) northwest of Bogota.

Pinto, however, did not say what caused the crash.
