MSNBC: At least nine people were killed when a Turkish Airlines plane with 143 people aboard slammed into a field while attempting to land at Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport and broke into three pieces, officials said Wednesday.
The airline had said at first that everyone survived. But at a news conference later, Michel Bezuijen, acting mayor of Haarlemmermeer, reported the fatalities.
"At this moment there are nine victims to mourn and more than 50 injured," he said. There was no immediate word on the cause of the crash.
Bezuijen said at least 25 of the injured were in a serious condition and that both crew members and passengers were hurt.
