Kebnekaise crash

All five dead now identified

The five Norwegian military personnel who died in the Hercules plane crash on Kebnekaise in Sweden have now been officially identified.

The four men and a woman have been identified with the help of DNA analysis and the relatives have been informed by the Norwegian authorities.

It is still not known why the aircraft on its way to Kiruna crashed into Sweden's highest peak on March 15.

Large parts of the plane which exploded on impact have now been recovered, but the black box flight recorder which may hold the key to the mystery has still not been found.
