Armenian aircraft crashes into Black Sea off Russia
Tue May 2, 11:51 PM ET
 
MOSCOW (AFP) - An Armenian aircraft carrying 113 people crashed into the Black Sea off the coast of the southern Russian city of Sochi, the Russian emergency situations ministry announced.
Rescue workers were going through debris from the Armavia airline Airbus 320, travelling from the Armenian capital Yerevan, which was floating in the Black Sea six kilometers (four miles) from shore.
The bodies of eight passengers including at least one woman have been recovered, the emergency situations ministry told AFP.
Parts of the fuselage, body parts, baggage and life vests were also floating in the water, according to theInterfax news agency.
A dozen boats from the emergency situations ministry were working at the site of the crash, but their work was being hindered by heavy rain.
The plane disappeared from radar screens as it was approaching Adler airport near Sochi, a resort town not far from the border between Russia and Georgia, at 2:15 am (2215 GMT) to land.
The aircraft was believed to be carrying 113 people, including six children, according to emergency situations ministry spokesman Oleg Grekov.
The emergency situation ministry earlier said it was dispatching a hydroplane to the site, as well as rescue and recovery teams.
