Five declared dead in Norwegian plane crash

Sweden/ near Tarfala - There were 5 people, all Norwegians, on the military
C-130J-30 Hercules plane when it crashed into mount Kebnekaise on Thursday during an international military exercise. Parts of the wreckage were found scattered across two glaciers early Saturday, and in the afternoon police announced they had also found remains of the crew members. Police are confident that "all five have died."
The aircraft disappeared from radar screens Thursday afternoon as it crossed a mountain range in northern Sweden on a flight from Evenes, on Norway's Arctic coast, to the Swedish city of Kiruna.

The plane was participating in a Norwegian-led military exercise with 16,000 soldiers from 14 countries.

Parts of the building were scorched black by fire, and wreckage of the helicopter was scattered outside. One piece had a red and white Turkish flag painted on it.
Four Afghan civilians on the ground were killed, NATO said. Two of them were young girls, said the Afghan Interior Ministry.
