Official: 4 Swiss die in France air crash

Switzerland's Foreign Ministry says four Swiss citizens have been killed when their light plane crashed in eastern France.
A ministry spokesman says the plane was en route from Belgium to Switzerland when the crash occurred around 6 p.m. (1600 GMT) Friday, 60 kilometers (40 miles) west of the French-Swiss border near the town of Montbeliard.
The spokesman, George Farago, said Saturday that the reason for the crash was being investigated.
The French newspaper Le Pays cited eyewitness accounts that the plane was hit by lightning before it crashed.
