“All 84 passengers and eight crew members on board the plane operated by the Russian military are believed to have died when it crashed two minutes after taking off at 5:25am local time (02:25 GMT) in good weather from the southern Russian city of Sochi. The Russian defense ministry said it had recovered 10 bodies by late Sunday,” wrote an Al-Jazeera report of the incident.
