(CNN) -- A plane crash in southern India early Saturday has killed more than 160 passengers, an Indian official said. V.S. Acharya, the home minister of India's Karnataka state, told CNN-IBN he thought about five or or six people had survived the crash. The Air India plane was carrying 165 passengers -- including four infants -- and went down around 6:30 a.m. (9 p.m. ET Friday) near the Mangalore International Airport, CNN's sister network reported, citing an airline spokesman.
