Yemeni plane crashes off Comoros

Plane carrying 150 people reported to have crashed near Indian ocean archipelago.

    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.

    The Comoros covers three small volcanic islands situated 300km northwest of Madagascar and a similar distance east of the African mainland.

    According to the Yemenia website, the airline uses the Airbus A310 aircraft on the route between Moroni and the Yemeni capital, Sana'a.
