By Jaime Saldarriaga and Fredy Builes MEDELLIN, Colombia (Reuters) - Dozens of coffins carrying those killed when a plane flying Brazil's Chapecoense soccer team crashed into a Colombian mountain were loaded onto Brazilian air force planes for their final journey home on Friday. The LAMIA Bolivia BAe146 airliner apparently ran out of fuel, lost electrical power and was preparing for an emergency landing when it crashed. The tragedy plunged Latin America's largest nation, Brazil, into mourning as it reels from a deep recession and political crisis.
President-elect Donald Trump turned back to cabinet-building Friday after a victory rally in the Rust Belt, where allies of the billionaire were pushing to stop a vote recount in three states that were key to his victory. Three separate moves -- by lawyers for Trump, his supporters, and a top law enforcement official -- aim to stop recounts requested by Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein, and now supported by Democrat Hillary Clinton's campaign. While Trump resumed interviews with potential cabinet members and other officials at his Trump Tower headquarters in Manhattan, a team of his attorneys filed suit in Pennsylvania seeking to deny Stein's request.
