A Yemenite plane crashed in the Indian Ocean near the Comoros Islands overnight Monday, likely killing all 150 passengers and crew. The cause of the accident was not immediately clear. A Yemenia Air plane was going from the Arabian Peninsula country to the Comoros Islands. A Yemen airport official said Tuesday morning that most of the passengers on the Airbus 310 were believed to be Comoros residents returning from Paris.
