MOSCOW (AP) — A military plane crashed in Kazakhstan Saturday, killing four of its crew and injuring the other, officials said.
The ex-Soviet country’s Emergencies Ministry said the two survivors were hospitalized.
The ministry said that Soviet-built An-26 two-engine turboprop crashed while trying to land at the airport of the country’s largest city, Almaty. The plane had flown from Kazakhstan’s capital, Nur-Sultan, with only six crew and no passengers on board.
The Interfax news agency said the plane was operated by Kazakhstan’s border guard agency.
