At least nine people were pronounced dead after a skydiving airplane crashed outside Orebro in Sweden.
All people on board, eight skydivers and one pilot, were found dead in the incident.
The plane crashed during takeoff and then caught fire, but the cause of the accident is not yet clear.
“It’s a very severe accident,” Swedish police said on their website. “Everyone on board the crashed plane has died.”
“It is a skydiver plane that crashed after takeoff,” Emil Gustavsson, rescue leader at the Joint Rescue Coordination Centre, told local TT news agency.
“It is with great sadness and sorrow that I have received the tragic information about the plane crash in Orebro,” Prime Minister Stefan Lofven wrote on Twitter.
“My thoughts are with the victims, their families, and loved ones in this very difficult time.”
In a similar incident two years ago, a parachuting plane crashed near the city of Umea in northern Sweden, killing nine people on board.
