Russian Military Transport Plane Crashes, Kills 39

A Russian military transport plane has crashed in Syria killing 39 people. The An-26 plane crashed during landing at Hmeimim airbase, near the coastal city of Latakia. It says all 39 military personnel on board died.

The plane was not fired upon, and preliminary data suggests a technical malfunction could have caused the crash, the country's defence ministry says.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has expressed condolences to the victims' relatives. An investigation is now under way.
