LYON, France (Reuters) - A small, twin-engine passenger plane crashed near Grenoble airport in the foothills of the French Alps on Saturday, killing all five people on board, a police official said.
The plane, which had been due to stop first in Spain before heading to Morocco where it was registered, came down just after takeoff near the village of Saint-Pierre-de-Bressieux, about 50 km (30 miles) northwest of Grenoble.
Bruno Charlot, a local government official, told BFM TV the plane was carrying a Moroccan family.
There was no immediate information on the cause of the crash, he said.
