Three survivors being treated for minor injuries after accident on plane carrying parachutists.

Finnish officials say eight people died when a small plane carrying parachutists crashed to the ground and caught fire.

Det Supt Petri Kangas said three people survived the accident on Sunday after they parachuted from the aircraft above Jamijarvi airfield, about 70 km (45 miles) east of the southwestern town of Pori.

Kangas said investigators did not know the cause of the accident but that "apparently some parts fell off the plane before it crashed."

Police said the eight victims were found in the badly burned aircraft, a Comp Air 8 kit aircraft, popular among parachutists, and that the three survivors were being treated for minor injuries.
