A small tourist plane crashed near the city of Namur in south-east Belgium killing at least 10 people.
The plane was carrying a group of skydivers and crashed shortly after take-off, killing all on board, the local mayor has told the AFP news agency.
The aicraft is thought to have taken off from the Temploux aerodrome and crashed around 10 minutes later in a field.
Its wing appears to have suffered some damage, Belgian media report.
The small plane came down near the village of Marchovelette, 6 miles from Namur.
“I just saw a plane lose its right wing in mid-flight and crash. I heard a massive ‘bang’ towards the south of Marchovelette,” one witness told Belgian television.
“I didn’t see anyone escape with a parachute,” the witness added.
