Six dead in tourist plane crash in Austria

VIENNA: A small tourist plane crashed in Austria's Alpine Tyrol region on Sunday, leaving six people dead, all of them Austrians, local police said.

The Cessna aircraft, en route from Innsbruck in western Austria to the Spanish city of Valencia, was carrying eight people when it went down in a forest and burst into flames after the pilot lost control, apparently because of thick fog.

Another person was seriously injured and another lightly hurt, police and rescuers said. All those on board were Austrian.
