Brazilian team Chapecoense among those on board crashed plane


Police in Colombia have said 76 people were killed when a plane carrying members of the Brazilian football team Chapecoense crashed in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

Initial reports said there were six survivors, including players, a crew member and travelling journalist, but police said one had died in hospital. The plane was carrying 72 passengers and nine crew members.

Chapecoense were flying to play a Copa Sudamerica finals match against Atlético Nacional on Wednesday in Medellin.

Medellin’s mayor, Federico Gutierrez, said the crash, close to the town of Cerro Gordo, was a “tragedy of huge proportions.” The Brazilian football confederation said in a statement that it was praying for the passengers and crew.
