Police in Peru say they have found the wreckage of a helicopter missing in the south of the country, and all 14 on board are dead.

The helicopter had left the Amazon region on Wednesday bound for Cusco.

The 12 passengers were mostly South Korean but included a Dutchman, a Czech, a Swede and a Peruvian.

Peru's police chief, Gen Raul Salazar, said that some parts of the helicopter had been thrown up to 200m by the force of impact.

Officials said bodies were being recovered from the crash site, although rain and snow have hampered the team's efforts.
