Turkey plane: Three dead, 179 hurt as jet skids off runway in Istanbul – BBC News

A passenger plane landing at an airport in Istanbul has skidded off the runway and broken into three parts, killing three people and injuring 179 others, officials say.

The Pegasus Airlines jet was carrying 177 passengers and six crew members from Izmir province in the west when it crashed at Sabiha Gokcen airport.

The Boeing 737 was trying to land in heavy tailwinds and rain.

The airport was closed and flights diverted after the accident.

The majority of people on board were Turkish, but local media quoted the airline’s records as saying there were 22 foreign passengers from 12 other countries. A small number of children are believed to have been on board.

Istanbul Governor Ali Yerlikaya said: “Unfortunately, the Pegasus Airlines plane couldn’t hold on the runway due to poor weather conditions and skidded for around 50-60m [164-196ft].”

He said the plane then fell between 30 and 40 metres off the end of the runway.

The airport has since reopened, while prosecutors have opened an investigation into the crash.

People ‘unaccounted for’ after volcano erupts in New Zealand – BBC News

A volcano has erupted in New Zealand with 100 people in the vicinity – leaving some unaccounted for, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has said.

Tourists were seen walking inside the rim of the White Island crater just moments before the eruption.

The local mayor told New Zealand media she feared there had been injuries.

White Island, or Whakaari, is off the coast of North Island – and is one the country’s most active volcanoes.

Despite that, the island is a tourist destination with frequent day tours and scenic flights available.

A live feed from the volcano showed a group of visitors inside the crater before images went dark after the eruption.
