Former US Senator from Alaska, Ted Stevens, is believed to have been in a plane that crashed with seven other people in Alaska today, authorities say. Rescuers were still trying to reach the crash site, but an Alaska National Guard spokesperson said five people were already on site, though it is unclear how they got there.
