The plane carrying the Brazilian football team to Colombia for the final of a regional tournament crashed, killing 75 passengers.

According to the reports, seven of the passengers who survived initially have also died later.

The entire Chapocoense football team – and an accompanying cortège of staff – were among 72 passengers and nine crew on board the aircraft. Some reports have also said that few journalists were among the passengers.

Local media reporting from Bogota said that the plane crashed in a mountainous region.

Initial reports have suggested that heavy rain could be the cause of the plane crash.
