Over 100 Killed In Cuba Plane Crash


The Department of Foreign Affairs says it hasn’t had any reports of any Irish citizens caught up in a plane crash in Cuba.

State media in the country says more than 100 people have been killed after the Boeing 737 came down as it left Havana’s Jose Marti International Airport.

It’s reported three survivors were taken to hospital – but it’s understood one later died.

The Department says it stands ready to provide consular help if necessary.
