ALMATY, Kazakhstan - An unmanned Russian rocket carrying three navigation satellites crashed shortly after lift-off from the Russian-leased Baikonur launch facility in Kazakhstan on Tuesday, Russian media reported. There were no reported injuries.

State-run Rossiya-24 television showed footage of the Proton-M booster rockets veering off course seconds after lift-off, rotating and falling apart in the air and crashing in a ball of fire near the launch pad.
