A Russian military transport plane has crashed in Syria killing all 39 people on board, sharply raising the death toll from Moscow’s intervention in the Syrian war.

Russian news agencies quoted the defence ministry as saying the plane, a Soviet-designed An-26, crashed at Russia’s Hmeymim airbase in Latakia province and initial information suggested a technical fault may have been the cause. All 39 dead were members of the Russian armed forces.
