A passenger plane broke apart and caught fire after an emergency landing yesterday at Donetsk International Airport in eastern Ukraine, causing at least five fatalities. Twelve were also injured in the incident, although “most of the survivors were able to walk off the plane by themselves” according to Svytlana Borodyna, an emergency ministry spokesperson.

Russia-based news service RT said an early report indicated 45 people on the plane, which is an Antonov An-24 turboprop. However, Borodyna said there were 44 people on the 44-seater aircraft.

The aircraft reportedly came to rest in a field, approximately 700 metres off the runway. Its undercarriage broke, and it overturned and split in three. Multiple ambulances were sent to the scene.
