Experts comb through cargo plane crash site in northern Greece; 8 dead
PALAIOCHORI, Greece (AP) — Experts investigated a cargo plane crash in northern Greece on Sunday, finding no evidence of hazardous substances, but saying there was plenty of ammunition the plane was carrying around from the accident site. The Serbian Defense Minister confirmed that all eight crew members died in the crash.
The An-12 cargo plane from Serbia was piloted by a Ukrainian aviation crew before crashing in fields between two Greek villages on Saturday evening. The plane crashed shortly before 11 p.m. about 40 kilometers (25 miles) west of Kavala International Airport.
