    A military cargo plane crashed in Seville shortly after takeoff, killing everyone on board

    An A400M military cargo plane crashed on Saturday shortly after taking off, killing all passengers, confirmed Spanish President Mariano Rajoy.

    "We express solidarity with the victims and their families, and show our regret. We are at your, and all the families', disposal," said Rajoy, who said that between eight and ten people were on board.

    According to reports, the plane crashed approximately a mile north of Seville's San Pablo Airport, which was closed after the accident.

    The Airbus A400 military transport plane was still in the property of the manufacturer, which has its Airbus Military production facility at locations around Andalucia, where the planes undergo a testing phase prior to being delivered to the buyer.
