Plane crashes in Turkey

Plane crashes in Turkey

An Ukrainian plane has crashed near the Black Sea resort of Trabzon in north-west Turkey.

All 74 people on board - most of them Spanish peacekeepers returning home from Afghanistan - died in the crash, Turkish public television TRT reported.

The plane had been due to make a refuelling stop in Trabzon, but hit a mountain slope 50 kilometres (30 miles) south of the town early on Monday, according to local media reports.

The plane, said to be a Yak-42, was flying from the Kyrgyz city of Bishkek to Zaragoza in Spain.

Local officials quoted by the Associated Press said that the plane crashed during its third attempt to land in thick fog.
