Colombia's civil aviation agency now says at least six people have survived the plane crash that killed more than 70 people, including many members of a Brazilian football team.

The agency statement says at least three Chapecoence players, two plane crew members and one journalist survived Monday's crash near the city of Medellin.

Reports about the number of survivors have varied overnight because of confusion amid the emergency.
