An Armenian passenger jet with 100 people onboard crashed early Wednesday off the Black Sea coast shortly before it was due to land in the Russian city of Sochi, Russian news agencies reported. Wreckage from the plane was found not far from the shoreline, but no passengers or crew have so far been found, the ITAR-Tass news agency reported, quoting Russian Emergency Situations spokesman Viktor Beltsov. Reportedly, the Airbus A-320, which belonged to the Armenian airline Armavia, disappeared from radar screens at about 2:15 a.m. It was carrying 92 passengers, including five children, and eight crew members.
