Spanish premier says military plane crashes, killing crew

A military transport plane crashed near southwestern Seville airport Saturday, killing its crew, Spain’s prime minister said. It is unclear if any others were injured. Mariano Rajoy said up to 10 crew members were aboard the brand new Airbus A400M aircraft that was undergoing flight trials at the airport. Spain’s airport authority AENA confirmed that Seville airport had been closed because its fire crews had gone to attend a plane crash outside its perimeter fence. All flights to Seville were being diverted to Malaga and Jerez airports, AENA said.
