A helicopter carrying a Colombian senator and congressman and four others crashed Sunday in stormy weather in the mountains north of Bogota, killing all aboard, a police official said.

The helicopter apparently had turned back to the capital before plunging to the ground, Cundinamarca state police Commander Yesid Vasquez told RCN television.

Senator Roberto Camacho and Congressman Efren Bejerano were among those killed in the crash 24 miles north of the Colombian capital in the state of Cundinamarca.
