Ten people were killed and another 13 people were injured after a Greek fighter plane crashed during NATO training in Spain on Monday, a spokesman for the defence ministry said.

The F-16 plane crashed shortly after taking off at the training center in Albacete, 262 kilometers south-east of the Spanish capital of Madrid.

“The plane, part of the Tactical Leadership Programme of NATO was carrying out a (training) exercise when during the take-off the plane lost power, crashing into the parking area for planes, crashing into various planes that were parked there,” said the defence ministry in a statement.

The defence ministry said firefighters were working to put out a fire at the base and the area had been cordoned off.
