MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - At least 65 U.S. citizens were on board the Aeromexico flight that crashed on Tuesday in northern Mexico without fatalities, an official at the Bureau of Consular Affairs at the State Department said on Wednesday.

The Mexico City-bound Embraer 190 passenger jet smashed into scrubland near the runway shortly after the plane took off from an airport in northern Durango state on Tuesday afternoon.
