Plane crashes into Black Sea, killing 112


MOSCOW (AP) – An Armenian passenger plane crashed in bad weather early Wednesday off Russia’s Black Sea coast as it was headed in for landing, killing all 112 people on board, emergency officials said.

The Airbus A-320, which belonged to the Armenian airline Armavia, disappeared from radar screens just under four miles from the shore and crashed after making a turn and heading toward the Adler airport near Sochi, Emergency Situations Ministry spokesman Viktor Beltsov said. Rescue officials in the ministry’s southern regional branch said all 112 people, including five children, were killed.
