Russia-Plane Crash

Friday has been declared a day of mourning in both Russia and Armenia for the 113 people presumed killed in a plane crash early this morning in the Black Sea.

The Armenian airlines Airbus crashed in deep water off shore as it was coming in for a landing at a Russian resort after a flight from Armenia's capital, Yerevan.

Six children were among those on board.

Search-and-rescue divers have recovered pieces of wreckage and 33 bodies.

None of them had a life jacket, which indicates there was little warning.

Russia's Ministry of Emergency Situations says a deep-sea robot will be used to try to recover the plane's flight recorders but one official says debris could be a mile deep, which might make recovery impossible.

The jet slammed into the sea during a rain storm, which investigators think was a factor.

They've all but ruled out terrorism.
