A small aircraft has clashed at the Orebro airport in Sweden, killing several passengers, police said on Thursday evening.
The plane crashed during take-off and then caught fire, with nine passengers on board, a police spokesperson said in a radio interview.
It was unclear if all of the passengers died, and the cause for the accident was also not yet known.
Orebro is located almost 200 kilometres west of Stockholm.
Swedish media reported that the aircraft was a parachuting plane. Newspaper Expressen wrote that eight skydivers had been on board the plane, plus the pilot.
Only two years ago, a parachuting plane crashed near the city of Umea, killing nine people.
