More Than 60 Passengers And Crew Killed As Plane Crashes In Russia

A Boeing 737 carrying 55 passengers and six crew has crashed in southern Russia, killing all on board. 
The plane, from budget airline FlyDubai, was coming from the United Arab Emirates, and had attempted a landing at Rostov-On-Don, but crash landed to the left of the runway as it approached in bad weather.
Russian officials have said that the plane crashed on its second attempt at a landing, having abandoned the first. The incident occurred at around 3.50am local time. 
Boeing made a statement after the initial reports came out of Russia, saying: “Our team is currently gathering more details.”
Earlier today, FlyDubai made a brief statement via their official Facebook, saying: “We are investigating further details and will publish an update once more information is available.”
Russian TV station RT published CCTV footage showing an explosion in the area near the crash, although their estimate of 100 casualties appears to be incorrect.
