An Armenian passenger jet crashed in bad weather early Wednesday off
the Black Sea coast shortly before it was to land in the Russian city
of Sochi, killing all 112 people aboard, emergency officials said.

The Airbus A-320, which belonged to the Armenian airline Armavia,
disappeared from radar screens just under 6 kilometers (3.7 miles)
from the shore and crashed after making a turn and heading toward the
Adler airport near Sochi, Emergency Situations Ministry spokesman
Viktor Beltsov said. Rescue officials in the ministry's southern
regional branch said all 112 people aboard the plane, including five
children, were killed.
