BREAKING NEWS: At least 37 killed after Turkish cargo plane crashes near Kyrgyzstan airport

A cargo plane crashed Monday in a residential area just outside the main airport in Kyrgyzstan, killing at least 37 people, the Emergency Situations Ministry said on Monday.

The Turkish Boeing 747 crashed just outside the Manas airport, south of the capital Bishkek, killing people in the residential area adjacent to the airport as well as those on the plane.

Reports of the death toll on Monday ranged from 37 people according to emergency officials in the Central Asian nation, to 31 reported by the presidential press office which also said rescue teams had recovered parts of nine bodies. Fifteen people including six children have been hospitalized.

Images from the scene showed the plane’s nose stuck inside a brick house and large chunks of debris scattered around.

Several dozen private houses cluster just outside the metal fence separating the cottages from the runway. Manas has been considerably expanded since the United States began to operate a military installation at the Manas airport, using it primarily for its operations in Afghanistan. American troops vacated the base and handed it over to the Kyrgyz military in 2014.

“I woke up because of a bright red light outside,” Baktygul Kurbatova, who was slightly injured, told local television. “I couldn’t understand what was happening. It turns out the ceiling and the walls were crashing on us. I was so scared but I managed to cover my son’s face with my hands so that debris would not fall on him.”

More than a thousand rescue workers were at the scene by late morning in the residential area where 15 houses were destroyed, Deputy Prime Minister Mukhammetkaly Abulgaziyev said.

The cause of the crash was not immediately clear. Kyrgyz Emergency Situations Minister Kubatbek Boronov told reporters that it was foggy at Manas when the plane came down but weather conditions were not critical. The plane’s flight recorders have not yet been found.

The plane, which had departed from Hong Kong, belonged to Istanbul-based cargo company ACT Airlines. It said in an emailed statement that the cause was unknown.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu on Monday called his Kyrgyz counterpart, Erlan Abdildaev, to offer Turkey’s condolences, the Turkish Foreign Ministry said.

BREAKING NEWS: At least 5 dead in Fort Lauderdale airport shooting; FAA halts flights

At least five people were shot dead Friday at one of South Florida’s busiest airports, leading officials to close the facility and advise people to “shelter in place.”

The gunfire happened at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport Friday afternoon and also injured at least eight others, the Broward County Sheriff’s Office said.

Law enforcement sources told NBC News they arrested one suspect after the shooting near the baggage claim area of Terminal 2, where Delta Air Lines operates.

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, in a 3:25 p.m. press briefing, said it appeared the man in custody worked alone, but law enforcement was methodically searching all terminals and parking areas to make sure there was no further threat.

“The scene is considered fluid and active,” he said.

Israel said there were no shots fired elsewhere in the airport, contrary to some news reports that a second shooting in Terminal 1 had occurred about an hour after the first.

“The only gunshots fired at any time during this horrific incident happened downstairs at Terminal 2,” he said.

The sheriff said the suspect was taken into custody uninjured and without incident. Officers never fired a shot.

“I heard shots [and] someone yell, ‘they shot him in face’ — and [I] ran like hell,” a witness told WSVN-TV.

Airport officials said all operations were halted and it’s unclear when they would resume. The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration issued a ground stop order for all flights nationwide headed for Fort Lauderdale-Hollywod International.

“They are being held on the ground at the origination airport,” the agency said.

A sheriff’s office spokeswoman told CBS Miami that the suspect is male. A witness told the outlet the gunman appeared to be in his early 20s, and walked into the airport without saying anything and began shooting.

Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., told MSNBC the suspect was carrying a military ID and identified him as Esteban Santiago, 26. Israel declined to identify the suspect, nor did he offer any details about the weapon used.

Former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer under President George W. Bush was at the airport at the time of the shooting and tweeted about the incident.

“I’m at the Ft. Lauderdale Airport. Shots have been fired. Everyone is running,” he tweeted shortly before 1 p.m.

About 15 minutes later he reported that “all seems calm now but police aren’t letting anyone out of the airport — at least not the area where I am.”

MSNBC reported some passengers at the airport were being held on the tarmac before being evacuated. Around 2:30 p.m., police sent more passengers back to the tarmac from the baggage claim area, some running.

One witness in the baggage claim area at the time of the shooting, Mark Lea, 53, told NBC News he was dodging bullets and trying to help people move out of the way.

“At first we thought it was firecrackers,” he said. “Everyone started screaming and running. The shooter made his way down through baggage claim. He had what looked like a 9mm and emptied his entire clip. People were trying to run.”

Lea called the scene “surreal” and said people were tripping over each other trying to make a fast exit out of the door.

President-elect Donald Trump tweeted that he’s “monitoring the terrible situation in Florida.”

“Just spoke to Gov. [Rick] Scott. Thoughts and prayers for all. Stay safe!” he said.
