15 dead as jet crashes in Tunis

15 dead as jet crashes in Tunis

The pilot survived but the co-pilot and the rest of the crew died, the Egyptian ambassador in Tunis, Mahdi Fattallah said.

The aircraft is resting on a hill in the area of a park about six kilometres (four miles) from the airport, and black smoke was seen rising from the site, The Associated Press reported.

Fifty-five passengers and eight crew were aboard the aircraft, which was on a flight from Cairo to Tunis when it came down in Nahli, in the northern part of the capital.
This is EgyptAir's 4th crash in 10 years. A 707-366C in 1996, a 767-366ER in 1999, a 767-366ER in 2000, and now this 737-566 in 2002.

EgyptAir is celebrating their 70 year anniversary this month.
