Four Finns on a hunting expedition died in a plane crash Friday that also killed their pilot near Zimbabwe's southern city of Masvingo, the Finnish consul's wife told AFP.

"There were four Finnish citizens and their pilot in the plane, they all died," Sally Ward told AFP.

Police spokesperson Paul Nyathi said the accident occurred near Renco, a gold mine on the outskirts of Masvingo and that investigators had found a Finnish identity card and a passport at the scene.
