An airliner belonging to the Yemeni state airline crashed off the Indian ocean archipelago of Comoros. The plane was carrying 150 passengers and crew, reported a news agency. "We don't know if there are any survivors among the 150 people on the plane," Idi Nadhoim, the Comoros vice-president, told the news agency from the airport in the capital Moroni. He said the accident happened in the early hours of Tuesday, but had no further details. A Comoran police official said the aircraft was believed to have come down in the sea, but that the country has no sea rescue capabilities.
