4 Americans & 5 Turks Perished In Dutch Crash

My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends affected by this terrible tragedy.

A Dutch mayor said Thursday the nine people killed when a Turkish Airlines jet slammed into a field near Amsterdam's main airport are five Turks and four Americans.

Haarlemmermeer mayor Theo Weterings said the names of the victims will not be released until the bodies have been formally identified. It was not immediately clear how long that would take.
