Seven dead in Brazilian small plane crash


Seven people were killed Sunday in Brazil's southeast Minas Gerais state when the small plane they were travelling in crashed, authorities said.

After leaving Campinas, in neighboring Sao Paulo state, the single-engine plane apparently broke up mid-air and crashed at around 10:30 am (1330 GMT) in the town of Itapeva.

Firefighters "found seven dead victims (who were) on board the aircraft," the department said in updated statement.
