Rock stars die in air crash

Rio de Janeiro - All five members of one of Brazil's hottest rock bands, Mamonas Assassinas, died when their private jet crashed a few miles outside Sao Paulo. The crash on Saturday killed all nine people aboard, including two assistants for the band, the pilot and co-pilot. Their Learjet hit a mountain in the Serra da Cantareira range moments after traffic control at Sao Paulo's Guarulhos Airport gave the pilot approval to begin landing operations. The cause has not been determined. AP
