    At least five people have been killed after a small plane crashed in western Switzerland, police say.

    Donatella Del Vecchio, Fribourg district police spokeswoman, said no one survived the single-engine plane crash on Saturday.

    She said five bodies were found at the site, and authorities were investigating to see if one more person aboard the aircraft had died in the accident.

    Residents of Tatroz saw the plane circle twice above the town before crashing nearby.

    No one on the ground was hurt.

    The plane was flying from a small airport near Lausanne city on Lake Geneva to an airstrip in the Fribourg district.
