The wreckages from a passenger plane carrying 28 people which went missing in Russia have been found.
Air traffic control lost contact with An-26 aircraft flying from the regional centre Petropavlovsk, 10 minutes before it was due to land in the settlement of Palana, in the north of the remote Kamchatka peninsula.
Governor Vladimir Solodov said fragments of the fuselage were found both on the shore and in the sea in a statement posted on the Kamchatka regional government’s website.
Poor weather conditions are being considered as a possible cause.
22 passengers, including one child, were on board, as well as six crew members officials said.
An investigation has been launched into the incident.
