An Armenian passenger jet has plunged into the Black Sea near the Russian resort of Sochi, killing all 113 people on board.
The Airbus (A-320) plane was flying out of Yerevan Wednesday and was about six kilometers from the Russian resort town when it went down at 0215 local time.
Armenian and Russian officials are blaming the crash on bad weather and stressing that terrorism was not involved.
Russia's Itar-Tass news agency says rescue workers have retrieved at least 46 bodies. They have also recovered parts of the fuselage and life jackets floating on the water.
Officials say most of the passengers were Armenian. 26 were Russian.
Heavy rain had forced the plane to cancel its initial landing attempt. As the plane circled to make a second approach to Sochi, it disappeared from radar.
Relatives have begun to arrive at Sochi airport. Russia and Armenia have announced a national day of mourning on May 5.
