Fourteen people have been killed in a plane crash during bad weather in the Brazilian Amazon on Saturday, BBC reported. 

The small propeller plane was nearing the end of its 400km (248 mile) trip between Manaus, the capital of Amazonas state, and the remote jungle town of Barcelos when it went down.

Officials said all those on board - 12 passengers and two crew - were killed in the crash.

An investigation has been launched into the cause of the incident.

Amazonas state security secretary Vinicius Almeida said initial information suggested the plane crashed after running out of runway when it descended into Barcelos during heavy rain and low visibility.
