Trainer plane crashes, kills three in Lebanon
No fewer than three people have died on Thursday after a small trainer plane crashed north of Lebanon's capital.
A military confirmed the tragedy in what was described as a rare kind of accident in the Mediterranean country.
The source said those killed were the pilot and a man and woman with the same family name.
Local news sites published images of the wreckage of the small white aircraft lying between trees in the heights above the coastal town of Jounieh.
Small planes in Lebanon are generally used for pilot training, or to take people on joyrides in exchange for a substantial fee.
