A Russian airliner crashed minutes after takeoff from a Moscow airport on Sunday, killing all 65 passengers and six crew members on board, officials said.
The plane was an An-148, a regional jet belonging to Saratov Airlines, that had taken off from Domodedovo Airport and was headed to Orsk about 1,000 miles southeast of Moscow, REN-TV reported.
The Moscow Inter-Regional Transport Prosecutor’s Office said in a statement to Interfax that all people on board the plane have died.
