Inquiry into the causes of plane crash during air show in Venezuela
Venezuela's Communication and Information Minister Ernesto Villegas said the pilots were not injured
The minister added that the pilots were not harmed during the accident.
"Unfortunately, we had some inconveniences with one plane, the K-8. We must establish a difference between these planes and the Y-8. The latter was recently bought from China," the Minister said to radio station Unión Radio.
A shipment of over 30,000 tons of phosphate arrived at Puerto Cabello port in late July on board the Shi Long Ling, a Chinese-flagged vessel that began its long journey in northern Africa. The cargo boat docked on July 26 after traveling more than 3,200 nautical miles. Undoubtedly, this would just be considered one in many cargo ships crisscrossing the oceans if it were not for the fact that Venezuela has denounced Western Sahara occupation by Morocco and yet purchases the territory's natural resource products from the occupying power.
