A Russian cargo plane has crashed in Siberia, killing nine people according to local reports.
The Antonov An-12 turboprop aircraft was on its way from Novosibirsk to Irkutsk when it fell on warehouses at a military unit outside the town.
It started a fire but no casualties were immediately reported on the ground.
Those who died were the aircraft’s six crew and three others on board.
The Soviet-era plane is understood to have first seen service in 1963.
A security source was quoted as saying potential causes were technical malfunction and pilot error.
Russia’s air safety record is among the world’s worst.
In November, dozens of people died when a passenger plane crashed at an airport in Kazan.
