ASUNCION, Paraguay (AFP) - A small plane crashed and exploded in Paraguay, killing six people, the police said on Saturday.
Two Brazilians and a Spaniard are among those who died when the aircraft crashed into a cornfield late Friday about 280km north-east of the capital Asuncion.
The accident happened about an hour after the plane - the remains of which are completely charred - left the city, according to a prosecutor and an assistant coroner.
The police identified the two Brazilians as soy producers Moacir Kuschel and his son Adriano.
