More than 100 passengers were killed in Cuba in a plane crash. 3 passengers were admitted to a hospital for treatment.
The aircraft, on a domestic flight to Holguin in eastern Cuba, crashed shortly after taking off from Havana at 11 am (1500 GMT). There were either 104 or 105 passengers, including five children, plus nine crew members, various state media said.
“We should expect that the news will not be good, as there are a high number of people who appear to have been killed,” President Miguel Diaz-Canel said in broadcast comments.
The plane which crashed was a boing 737.
Boeing Co said in a Twitter post: “We are aware of news reports out of Cuba and are closely monitoring the situation.”
Boeing 737 aircraft use engines made by CFM International, the supplier of the world`s most-used engines, built by a joint venture of GE and France`s Safran .
