Five killed in plane crash fireball

All five people on a small business jet that crashed near Frankfurt have been confirmed dead, say German police.

Rescue workers discovered two more bodies amid the debris a day after the 12-seat Cessna with a pilot, co-pilot and three passengers on board crashed into a forest and burst into flames when trying to land at Egelsbach airstrip.

Officials retrieved the cockpit voice recorder and the flight recorder from the plane's wreckage.

The twin-engine Cessna 750 Citation X was registered in the US, but authorities have not said who owned or operated it.

It was on a flight from the Austrian city of Linz.
