Rescue workers search the wreckage of the West Caribbean Airways MD-82 aircraft in Machiques, about 100 miles (161 km) southwest of Maracaibo, Venezuela, August 16, 2005. A Colombian jet travelling from Panama to Martinique crashed in Venezuela on Tuesday after its engines failed, killing all 160 passengers and crew in one of the country's worst air disasters, officials said. The West Caribbean Airways MD-82 aircraft was en route to the French Caribbean island of Martinique when it began to have engine trouble and attempted to divert to an airport in Venezuela. It crashed at a cattle farm near Venezuela's border with Colombia, authorities said. REUTERS/Jorge Silva JS/mk
