Five dead, 10 wounded and three missing. It is the provisional balance sheet of the clash between two seaplanes in Alaska. The causes of the accident are not clear but the authorities are investigating.

On board the two seaplanes, which collided in flight, there were 16 passengers on the Royal Princess cruise ship. Three of them are still missing and research is ongoing. On-site federal investigators are coming from Washington. They will arrive in Ketchikan this afternoon. One of the 10 wounded is in serious condition.
