[TAIPEI] Both engines of the TransAsia Airways ATR 72-600 that crashed in Taiwan this week failed before it plummeted into a river, killing at least 35 people, the Aviation Safety Council said on Friday.

"Based on the data we have so far we can see that for a period of time both engines showed no thrust," said Thomas Wang, director of the agency which is investigating the cause of the accident.
