7 things to know now: Soccer team killed in crash; Trump, Romney to meet; OSU attack


Here's a roundup of news trending across the nation and world today.

What to know now:

1. Plane crash in Columbia: A chartered plane carrying the Brazilian soccer team crashed overnight, killing at least 76 of the 81 people on board, according to authorities. The team was headed to Medellin, Columbia, from Bolivia when the plane’s pilots declared an emergency around 10 p.m. Monday. There were reports of bad weather in the area where the plane went down.

2. Fire in Tennessee: Strong winds are pushing a fire in the Great Smoky Mountain region of Tennessee. Because of the fast moving flames, officials have ordered a mandatory evacuation for the 4,000 residents of the tourist town of Gatlinburg, something unprecedented in the town’s history.

3. Trump, Romeny to meet: President-elect Donald Trump is set to meet with Mitt Romney again on Tuesday as he continues to work to fill his cabinet. Romney is being considered for secretary of state. Georgia Rep. Tom Price will be named secretary of Health and Human Services, according to those familiar with the dealings of the transition process. Trump learned on Monday that Michigan officials certified the results of the state’s election and declared him the winner of its 13 electoral votes. Green Party candidate Jill Stein is expected to call for a recount of those votes Tuesday.

4. Three dead after dinner: Health officials are working to determine if a Thanksgiving dinner served by a church in California was the reason three people died and five others became seriously ill. The meal was prepared for the elderly and homeless in Antioch, Calif., last week. Officials say those who became ill following the meal also lived in the same facility, and that they are not certain it was the food that caused the illness. More than 800 people attended the event.

5. Was OSU attack terror: Investigators say they are looking into whether the Ohio State University student who injured 11 people on Monday had any ties to terror groups. Somali-born Abdul Razak Ali Artan was killed by a police officer after he drove his car into a crowd of people on the OSU campus then began attacking them with a knife. A motive for the attack was not immediately known, officials said.
