Internationally known preacher Myles Munroe dies in plane crash

Christian minister and motivational speaker Myles Munroe, his wife Ruth, and several others were killed Sunday after their plane crashed in the Bahamas.

There were nine people onboard the Learjet 36, with "some fatalities," the Bahamian aviation ministry confirmed. The plane crashed while making a landing approach at the Grand Bahama International Airport, NBC News reports.

The head of youth ministries at Munroe's Bahamas Faith Ministries International, Dave Burrows, said that in addition to Munroe and his wife, the ministry's senior vice president and pastor, Richard Pinder, was also killed. They were on their way to Freeport for the Global Leadership Forum, an event put together by Bahamas Faith Ministries International.

Munroe was the author of more than 100 best-selling inspirational and motivational books, and often preached to large audiences with other well-know ministers.
