12-26-2016 19:27 BJT

Russia's transport minister says pilot error or a technical fault - and not terrorism - was the likely cause of Sunday's plane crash in the Black Sea.

All 84 passengers and eight crew members on the military Tu-154 aircraft plane are believed to have died in the incident. The aircraft plunged into the sea on Sunday morning two minutes after taking off from the southern Russian city of Sochi. The passengers included several members of Russia's military choir, nine journalists and a Russian doctor known for her charity work in war zones.
