An airplane crashed as it attempted to land at southern Thailand's Phuket airport Sunday afternoon, killing 60 people. It was not immediately clear how many more were injured or whether there were survivors. Chaisak Angsuwan, director general of the Air Transport Authority of Thailand, said in the TITV report that there was heavy rain when Orient Thai Airways flight OG 269, traveling from Bangkok to Phuket, tried to land in heavy rain. It was unclear whether there were Israelis aboard the plane. Army Radio contributed to this report.
