Plane loaded with cocaine crashes in Venezuela

A small plane loaded with cocaine crashed in eastern Venezuela, killing the two people aboard and revealing a drug shipment that was seized by troops.

National Guard soldiers confiscated 480 kilograms (1,058 pounds) of cocaine from the Cessna that crashed on Monday night, the attorney general's office said in statement Tuesday.

The wreckage was found near the town of El Tigre, about 400 kilometers (250 miles) southeast of Caracas.

The bodies of the pilot and another person were found in the Venezuelan-registered plane. Authorities did not give details about the suspected causes of the crash, nor details about where the plane departed from or was headed.

In an apparent unrelated story Hugo Chavez the President of Venezuela is rumored to be receiving a delivery of 480 kilograms of baking powder and is convinced he is loved by one and all as he slowly destroys the once flourishing Venezuela. [satire]
