BANGKOK (AP) - Thailand's foreign ministry says an internal flight in neighboring Laos has killed all 44 people aboard.

Sek says there were 39 passengers, including five Thais, and five crew members aboard.

Calls to Lao government officials and airline offices seeking further details went unanswered.
