Asiana Airlines cargo plane crashes off South Korea

SEOUL: An Asiana Airlines Boeing 744 cargo plane crashed on Thursday in waters off South Korea's southern Jeju island killing two, Yonhap news agency reported. Debris from the aircraft, which had taken off from Incheon at 3:05 am and headed for Pudong in east China, was found by a coast guard patrol boat in the sea about 107 kilometres west of Jeju city, Yonhap said. The plane carrying a pilot and one crew disappeared from radar at 4:09 am while returning to Jeju airport after reporting mechanical trouble, it said. The Seoul-based air carrier largely operates short-haul routes into Asia. In June, South Korean troops fired at one of the airline's passenger jets flying from China with 119 people on board after mistaking it for a North Korean aircraft, amid increasingly fraught relations on the divided peninsula.
