'Three killed' after plane crashes into crowd in western Germany

Several people died when a Cessna plane crashed into a crowd in the western German state of Hesse on Sunday, police said.

Several more people were injured in the incident that happened around 3.45pm (2.45pm Irish time) in the Rhön region near the town of Fulda, police said.

Local media reported that the pilot lost control of the aircraft when trying to land at Wasserkuppe.

It appeared that something went wrong during the procedure so the pilot tried to take off again but the Cessna did not pick up, broke through a barrier and rolled into a waiting crowd, Osthessen News reported.

According to a Bild newspaper report, three people were fatally injured. â€" Reuters

A small plane has crashed in central Germany, killing two women and a boy.

The single-engine Cessna hit a group of people clustered by an airfield on Wasserkuppe mountain near the town of Fulda in Hesse state on Sunday.

The plane was trying to gain height after a failed landing and crashed through an airport fence onto a road at about 15:45 (13:45 GMT).

A police statement said five people were injured, including all four on board the plane.

Police are still working to identify the three victims, , the statement said, although local media report the boy could have been as young as 10.

The 56-year-old pilot and three passengers were taken to hospital with slight injuries, and an eyewitness suffered severe shock.

The weather was reportedly fair at the time, and the cause of the crash is not yet known. Police are investigating.

Emergency services are at the scene, which has been cordoned off.

Hesse state prime minister Volker Bouffier and interior minister Peter Beuth said they were "deeply affected" by the c rash on the state chancellery Twitter page, and thanked the emergency services for their commitment.

The aircraft is reported to have been privately owned.

Wasserkuppe mountain is the highest peak in the Rhön Mountains and is popular among fliers of light aircraft and gliders.

Germany, UK, France urge 'credible' probe into Saudi journalist's disappearance

Germany, the United Kingdom and France urged joint Saudi-Turkish efforts to investigate the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, fueling international pressure on Saudi Arabia to shed light on what happened.

“Germany, the United Kingdom and France share the grave concern expressed by others including [EU foreign policy chief Federica] Mogherini and [United Nations Secretary General António] Guterres, and are treating this incident with the utmost seriousness,” the foreign ministers of Europe’s three largest countries said in a joint statement Sunday.

“There needs to be a credible investigation to establish the truth about what happened, and â€" if relevant â€" to identify those bearing responsibility for the disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi, and ensure that they are held to account.”

Khashoggi, a U.S. resident who has long been a prominent critic of the Saudi government, has not been seen since he entered Saudia Arabia’s consulate in Istanbul about two weeks ago to obtain documents. Last weekend, Turkish authorities began investigating his disappearance and have said they believe Saudi agents killed and dismembered Khashoggi, saying they have audio and video recordings documenting what happened.

“We encourage joint Saudi-Turkish efforts in [an investigation], and expect the Saudi Government to provide a complete and detailed response,” Germany’s Heiko Maas, France’s Jean-Yves Le Drian and the U.K.’s Jeremy Hunt said in the statement, adding that they had “conveyed this message directly to the Saudi authorities.”

U.S. President Donald Trump has threatened Riyadh â€" traditionally an ally to the U.S. â€" with “severe punishment” if it’s confirmed the regime was involved in Khashoggi’s alleged dea th.

On Sunday, Riyadh, which has fervently rejected accusations that it ordered his killing, shot back by vowing to retaliate against any sanctions.

Plane accident in central Germany leaves 3 people dead

October 14 at 11:46 AM

BERLIN â€" Police say three people died after they were hit by a small plane in central Germany as it attempted to take off from an aborted landing.

Police in Hesse state said the victims, two adults and a child, were standing at the edge of an airfield at the Wasserkuppe hill near Fulda, German news agency dpa reported.

They said the Cessna had been attempting to take off after an aborted landing maneuver on Sunday, but failed to gain lift and broke through a barrier, hitting the three.

It wasn’t immediately clear whether anyone else was hurt. Police said there wasn’t a crowd at the site near the airfield at the time of the accident.
