Two sunbathers killed after plane crash lands on beach

A small aeroplane made an emergency landing on a popular, crowded beach near Lisbon on Wednesday, killing two people.

Tourists had been sunbathing on the beach when the plane - described as a light aircraft - was forced to land. One 8-year-old girl and a man whose age was given as either 50 or 56 died in the incident.

The two pilots of the plane were not injured and are being questioned, a spokesman for the authority said.
