MOSCOW: Ten people are believed to have been killed when a Russian long-range anti-submarine aircraft, a Tu-142, crashed in the Tatar Strait in Russia's Far East.
The plane was said to have been on a routine training mission when it lost radio contact with air traffic control.
The emergency services say, despite the bad weather, they have located the wreckage site some 15-20 kilometres from the coastline, and are now searching for surviving crewmembers.
