Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana said in a statement that among the 92 personnel on board the C-130 Hercules transport, three were pilots and five crew members, with the rest being “Army personnel reporting for duty”, reports Xinhua news agency.

Rescue and recovery operations are ongoing, Lorenzana added.

Armed Forces of the Philippine chief of staff General Cirilito Sobejana said the plane was transporting troops from Cagayan de Oro City on Mindanao island when it crashed at around 11.30 a.m. on Jolo island.

“Responders are at the site now,” he said, expressing hope that more people on the plane will be saved from the wreckage.
