The Bahamas Tribune is reporting that the leader of the Bahamas Faith Ministries, Dr Myles Munroe, and his wife, Ruth, are among nine people killed in a plane crash in Grand Bahama.



The nine died when the private jet in which they were travelling crashed around 5 o'clock this afternoon.



The plane reportedly struck a crane at the Grand Bahama Ship Yard, exploding on impact and crashing into the ground near a junkyard.



It is reported that the Lear 36 executive jet had departed the Lynden Pindling International Airport for the Grand Bahama International Airport.



The identities of the other people on board have not yet been confirmed.



A full investigation is expected.



Munroe and his wife were heading to Grand Bahama for a global leadership forum scheduled for November 10-13.
