Russian separatists in Ukraine shoot down an army transport plane in eastern Ukraine, killing 49 people. President Petro Poroshenko promised an "adequate" response to the attack.
Charred debris was scattered for hundreds of metres over the sloping wheat field where the plane came down overnight near Novohannivka, a village 12 miles southeast of Luhansk.
A platoon of rebel forces clad in camouflage fatigues scoured through the ruins for ammunition that had been intended for the government forces in east Ukraine.
