A plane crash has killed 71 people in Colombia, with six officially confirmed survivors. The plane - on its way to Medellin international airport - was carrying the first division Brazilian soccer team Chapecoense.
The single-engine aircraft appears to have crashed into a communications tower. However, an investigation is looking into the precise cause of the fatal flight.
Alan Ruschel, one of three Chapecoense players to survive the plane crash which killed 71 people last year, will make his comeback in a glamour friendly against Barcelona. He had back surgery following the disaster.
A journalist who survived the crash that killed most of the Brazilian Chapecoense soccer team has said that crew members did nothing to warn passengers. They were not even told to put on seatbelts, he told Brazilian TV.
Colombian investigators have confirmed that the private jet, which crashed last month with a Brazilian football team onboard, ran out of fuel. Seventy-one people were killed when the plane slammed into the Andes.
