An Armenian Airlines plane carrying more than 100 people has crashed
into the Black Sea, just off the Russian coast. Emergency officials
say there are no survivors.

The accident happened near the resort city of Sochi in southern Russia.

Local media report that debris has been found in the water six
kilometres offshore. One report says the body of a woman - a passenger
on the plane - as well as lifejackets have been recovered from the sea.

The flight originated in Yerevan, Armenia and was to have landed
in Sochi.

But the Itar-Tass news agency reported that the aircraft, an Airbus
320, disappeared from radar screens as it was making its approach.

The plane was carrying 112 passengers and crew members.

Russian emergency officials said all of the people on board the plane
were killed in the accident.
