Rescue workers and crash investigators are searching the wreckage of an Airbus 320 Brazilian passenger jet that crashed in flames at Sao Paulo airport.
Some 200 people are feared dead after the plane overshot a runway and crashed on landing.
The TAM airlines Flight 3054 slid off the end of the runway at Congonhas airport as it landed in wet conditions, skidded across a road and then crashed into a fuel and cargo depot.
The state governor said none of the 186 people on board the plane could have survived, and a number of people on the ground also died.
The depot was busy with airport workers, some of whom had to jump out of windows. Three are confirmed dead, five others are missing.
Witnesses spoke of motorists being killed in their cars on a busy road.
The airliner's data recorder has been recovered, and will be examined by investigators.
President Luis Inacio Lula da Silva declared three days of mourning for the victims.
Congonhas airport is notorious for its short and often slippery runway, and its proximity to the city centre.
Among others, the investigation is to look into the condition of the recently resurfaced runway, concerns about which had been the subject of court decisions.
