Three Ukrainians die in cargo plane crash in Bangladesh


A cargo plane crashed off the coast of Bangladesh Wednesday killing three Ukrainian crew members and critically injuring one more, officials said.

The plane went down in the Bay of Bengal minutes after taking off from the southeastern resort town of Cox’s Bazar, killing three of the four crew on board.

A team of Bangladesh navy and coastguard ships and patrol aircraft recovered the bodies and took the injured man to hospital, local police chief Aslam Hossain told AFP.

“The injured Ukrainian crew has been sent to a top hospital in Chittagong city. He is now in intensive care,” Hossain said, adding that the man was in critical condition.
