A military plane crashed into the Black Sea yesterday, killing all on board. Some aircraft fragments have been retrieved, but authorities have now widened the search. A human error or a technical fault are most likely to have caused the crash.
There were no survivors among the all-Russian crew that was transporting vehicles, weapons and military personnel. Initial reports suggest the plane suffered a faulty take-off.
The plane carrying 14 crew members and 108 passengers went missing while flying to the country's largest city, Yangon. Bodies and parts of the plane were found off the coast of Launglon.
Divers have found parts of the debris from a TU-154 airplane in the Black sea near Sochi. 92 people are believed to have been killed when the military plane crashed minutes after takeoff.
A commemoration has been held in the Netherlands three years after a Malaysia Airlines passenger plane went down over conflict-ridden eastern Ukraine. A probe into the crash has raised issues of Russia's accountability.
