A twin-engine plane carrying 43 people crashed upon takeoff in Siberia on Monday, killing all but 11 people on board, Russia's RIA Novosti news agency said.
The plane had taken off from the city of Tyumen and traffic control lost contact with it immediately afterward, the news agency said.
The ATR-72 plane was carrying 39 passengers and four crew members.
Thirty two of them died, including all four crew members, the news agency said.
The 11 survivors were in intensive care, RIA-Novosti said.
Authorities could not immediately say what caused the crash. Officials have recovered the plane's data recorders, which will help shed light on what happened in the flight's final minutes.FULL STORY
