An Armenian passenger plane flying to Russia has crashed into the Black Sea, killing all 113 people aboard, officials have said.
Search and rescue teams retrieved at least 46 bodies, body parts and jagged pieces of the Airbus A-320 plane from the choppy waters near the southern Russian city of Sochi.
The plane's tail and some of the passengers' belongings were also pulled from the sea.
A piece of the landing gear was recovered, and a deep-sea robot was to be used to track down the jet's recorders.
Armenian and Russian investigators were examining debris to determine the cause of the crash. They said they believed it was due to bad weather.
The Armavia airline's jet flying from Yerevan to Sochi's airport, Adler, disappeared from radar screens at 0215 local time (2215 GMT Tuesday) as it made a second attempt to land.
Dozens of tearful relatives kept an anguished vigil at Adler and Yerevan airports, as the list of those killed was released. Most of the passengers were Armenian nationals.
One of the relatives became hysterical and had to be taken away by ambulance.
