Moscow, March 19 (IANS) At least 61 people were killed on Saturday when a passenger jet crashed in the southern Russian city of Rostov-on-Don, media reports said.

Flydubai flight FZ981 was en route from Dubai and crashed while trying to land, RT News reported.

Air-traffic control and local emergency services confirmed that the Boeing 737-800 jet crashed near the runway during a second approach in conditions of poor visibility killing all 61 on board -- 55 passengers, six crew members.

"During the landing approach a Boeing-737 crashed. It had 55 passengers on board. All of them died," a regional official told TASS news agency.
