14 Die as Plane Crashes into a Building

At least 14 people died on Friday when a passenger plane carrying 100 people crashed into a house shortly after takeoff from Kazakhstan’s largest city, authorities said.

The Bek Air plane “fell off the radar” minutes after it took off from Almaty airport at 7.05 am (01:05 GMT) on its way to the capital, Nur-Sultan, the airport authority said in a statement.

“There are 14 dead at the (crash) site,” the city government said in a statement sent from its Telegram messenger app.

It added that 17 patients including at least eight children were being treated in the hospital.

A video, released by the Central Asian country’s emergencies committee, showed the front of the plane crashed into a house that was partially collapsed, as rescue crews worked to pull people from the wreckage.
