Russian Saratov Airlines operated plane AN-148 crashes near Moscow;71 people killed

A plane operated by Russia's Saratov Airlines crashed in the Moscow region on Sunday, killing all 71 people on board.

According to initial information, the plane was carrying 65 passengers and six crew.

The aircraft had gone missing shortly after take-off from Moscow’s Domodedovo airport.

The plane was bound for the Russian city of Orsk in the Orenburg region that borders Kazakhstan and went missing from radars less than 10 minutes after taking off from Moscow's Domodedovo airport.

"Debris has been found, there are no survivors," TASS quoted a source as saying.

“The airplane reportedly crashed outside Argunovo village [in the Moscow region],” the source told Interfax news agency.

It was not immediately clear what caused the crash. The Russian Transport Ministry was considering various possible reasons, including weather conditions and a pilot error, Interfax said.
