A private jet crashed in northern Mexico after leaving Las Vegas on Sunday, killing all 13 people on board, authorities said.

The government of Mexico's Coahuila state said, in a statement, that the wreckage of the crashed jet, identified as a Challenger 601, was later found in a remote mountainous zone of Mexico, after aviation authorities lost contact with the plane two hours after its take off.

"There were no survivors seen," it added.

Authorities said bad weather could have played a part in the crash.
