DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. November 29, 2016, 12:04 PM (IDT)

Only five people survived out of the 81 passengers aboard the chartered aircraft from Bolivia that crashed on approaching Medellin in Colombia Monday night. The passengers included members of the top Brazilian Chapecoense football team, who were on their way to play Medellin’s Atletico Nacional in the final of the Copa Sudamericana club competition. The club has cancelled all events. The pilot signaled before the crash that he had electrical problems.

Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
