Three feared dead after small plane crash in Austrian Alps


Authorities say three people are feared dead after a plane crash in the Austrian Alps close to the German border.

Australian police say the identities of those feared dead are yet to be known.

The plane crashed into a mountainside cliff at an altitude of about 2,300m (7,500ft) and authorities said it burned completely after the collision in the Wetterstein region.

The small aircraft went down at about 5:30pm local time (4.30pm BST) in the mountains near the town of Leutasch, not far from the German resort of Garmisch-Partenkirchen.

It was not immediately clear where the vehicle was registered or where it was heading.
