Israeli aircraft crashes near Greece, 2 killed – report

The bodies of two people were reportedly recovered after a small private Israeli aircraft crashed near the eastern Aegean island of Samos on Monday evening, according to Greek media.

The plane, a Cessna 172, reportedly departed from Israel and “encountered a problem on the approach to the island’s airport.”

It is unclear what this problem was, though evidence seems to point to a technical issue with the engine, CNN reported.

According to reports, a search and rescue team has been dispatched, including local volunteers.

There were no other passengers on the plane, reports indicated. 

This is a developing story. Please check back for more updates.
