72 die in Turkish airliner crash


A Turkish Airlines plane crashed as it tried to land in southeastern Turkey on Wednesday, killing 72 of the 76 people aboard, Interior Minister Abdulkadir Aksu said. THE RJ-100, a four-engine plane built by British Aerospace, was on its way from Istanbul when it crashed in the largely Kurdish city of Diyarbakir.

Scores killed in Turkey plane crash

Scores killed in Turkey plane crash

The Turkish authorities say 75 people were killed when an airliner crashed on landing in thick fog near the south-eastern city of Diyarbakir.

Turkish Interior Minister Abdulkadir Aksu said only five people survived when the Turkish Airlines RJ-100 plane crash-landed onto a field near the city's airport.

Two Britons and an American are reported to be among the dead.

The four-engine aircraft, on Turkish Airlines flight TK 634 from Istanbul, hit the ground 30 metres short of a military runway in the wrong part of Diyarbakir airport, at about 2012 (1712 GMT).
