Ukraine: 49 killed as military plane is shot down in Luhansk

A Ukrainian military spokesman says 49 government troops were killed when pro-Russian separatists shot down a cargo plane over the eastern city of Luhansk overnight.

Ukraine’s Defence Ministry earlier reported that separatist rebels had shot down a military transport aircraft IL-76 carrying troops and supplies.

Describing the rebels as terrorists, Ukranian officials said the separatists deliberately targeted the plane which was reportedly coming in to land at the city’s airport.
