Two Hungarians die in small plane crash in Sweden

STOCKHOLM, Sweden - Two Hungarian nationals died when their private propeller plane crashed into the sea off Sweden's coast this weekend, police said on Monday.

The identities of the two people were not disclosed but a police spokesman told AFP they were both in their 40s.

Police "have opened an investigation" into the cause of the accident, the spokesman said. 

The plane was en route from Poland to Dala-Jarna in central Sweden, but changed its destination to Skavsta airport near the eastern town of Nykoping but never made it, crashing into the sea off the coast of Norrkoping, aviation authorities said.
