Fourteen people have died in a plane crash in Honduras.

The Central American Airlines craft crashed shortly before it was due to land in the capital, Tegucigalpa.

Deputy transport minister Rodolfo Robelo and former economy minister Carlos Chain were among the dead.

The Honduran Air Force says weather conditions in the area were poor at the time.
