Twelve people, including an Australian, were killed when a light plane crashed just short of a landing strip in remote Papua New Guinea, reports said on Thursday.

The aircraft was flying in the rugged west of the Pacific nation on Wednesday afternoon when its engine failed mid-air, sending it into a nose-dive, the PNG Broadcasting Corporation said.

It crashed into a swamp close to Kiunga airstrip.
