MOSCOW (AP) - Officials say a passenger airliner has crashed in Russia, and all 50 people aboard are believed to have been killed.

Officials say the Boeing 737 belonging to Tatarstan Airlines crashed while landing in the city of Kazan, about 450 miles east of Moscow, where the flight originated in Moscow.

A spokeswoman for the Emergencies Ministry said there were 44 passengers and six crew members aboard and all had been killed.

There's no word on what may have caused the crash.
