The Russian Emergency Situations Ministry said Wednesday that bad
weather was likely to blame for the crash of an Armenian passenger
airline off Russia's Black Sea Coast that killed all 113 people on
board, news agencies reported.

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 the Russian resort of Sochi.
