Three Germans Die In Spain Plane Crash
MADRID:
Three German nationals died when the small plane they were traveling in crashed in southern Spain at the weekend, authorities said on Monday.

 They were flying from the southeastern town of Muchamiel to Granada in southern Andalucia on Saturday afternoon, and crashed in a mountainous area some 80 kilometres (50 miles) from their final destination.

“Initial identification via their ID indicates they were German, but
authorities are in contact with the consulate,” said a spokesperson for
the central government’s representative office in Malaga province, where
the accident happened.

She did not know whether they were tourists or residents in Spain,
adding that authorities were investigating the accident, including
whether the plane was forced to deviate its course due to high winds.
