Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said two pilots were among the dead. The other eight were French citizens.

Rajoy said there are “many injured,” ten of them French and 11 Italians.

One witness to the crash said that the accident happened very fast. “Just after taking-off on the runway, I noticed the plane turned right and hit the ground. It then exploded,” he said.
